Winter sunshine quilts for mellow yellow monday


The quilt above I call winter sunshine. It is very yellow as was its purpose in design. It is made of 150, 5 inch squares: The backing of the quilt continues the yellow theme as can be seen below, and a nighttime theme is also introduced with its star covered pattern. Please click on the picture below to better see the stars in the fabric.

Inthe photo above the little dolly quilt is being held in the front.

With a few scraps and bits and pieces left over I cut 30, 4 inch squares to make the little dolly quilt shown above. It is 20 inches by 24". the original and larger winter sunshine quilt I used the same star covered yellow pattern fabric for backing as seen in the photo below.

The idea for these quilts I copied from my role model, and mentor ,Riel who quietly quilts in Quispamsis. You can see her work by clicking on the url below.

Great Ann! I love it. Yellow is so cheerful in the wintertime or anytime. You did a great job and I love the little doll quilt. So, what are you doing next??
