Sunny Days

I've finally finished my hexagon quilt. Most fabric is from Rainy Days and Mondays by melimba and beccabury for Riley Blake. I had a fortuitous problem -- not enough of the charcoal solid I was using in-between the hexies. I improvised some of the yellow print I had on hand to makes suns -- and that's my favorite part!




So I am calling this quilt Sunny Days. And it makes me happy like its namesake.




I used the leftover half hexagons to create a pieced back. Has me thinking of ideas for another quilt...




And I think the shape looks awesome on the back of the couch (see the cat scratcher in the lower left corner? My brother-in-law made it for us and it is worth its weight in gold! Charlie recently had to rewrap it so we could continue to have un-scratched furniture!).

I'm so excited, I want to share some of this adorable fabric line with you.




I've cut a few charms from my scraps, and there are two larger pieces of the green and umbrellas-on-yellow. Make a note in your comment if you're interested and I will draw a winner on Wednesday.

And in case you are on the fence regarding the cute-ness of this fabric, here's Jaxon modeling the scraps...

I didn't originally find Rainy Days all that compelling but now that I've seen it in use, it's so fun. Funny how fabric can change like that.

Love the hexagon shape of that quilt - it's so fun to see quilts in shapes other than rectangles and squares, although I haven't tried it yet myself!

And yes, I would love to win some of your scraps - they look yummy!

Ooh, I wasn't really want to delve into the world of hexies (even this easy version) just quite yet, but now I might have to... yours really looks great on the back of your couch!

That fabric is adorable. Will you send Jaxon with the fabric? We have two kitties that could keep him very happy. ;-)

Wow, the cuteness factor is through the roof on this one!! That little blonde is gorgeous. The fabrics are great too ;-)
(please put my name in the virtual hat).
Your quilt looks great and I really like the sunshine in it too. Funny how these things happen!
