Default The last of the three "sunny lanes' quilt tops - blue (compare red and yellow)

I've finished the blue "sunny lanes" scrappy quilt top.

Several of you asked questions in the last thread comparing the yellow and red ones.

The finished size as I've done them are 78"x102". They are 5 blocks x 7 blocks and the pattern is free at http://www.quilterscache.com/S/SunnyLanesBlock.html. Each finished block is 12".

This blue one is a bit different in that I had planned on using only the lighter of the blues at first. Then, I saw I wouldn't have enough blue to make it as large as I wanted it, so I broke out the darker blue and cut up what I call "yardage" in order to have enough blue for the contrast. I had other scrappy blues but they didn't coordinate well with the original blue color and I wouldn't have liked it.

I've still got a lot of 2" strips, so I'm probably going to do two more---using purples and then green, but not right now. so if you are going to "wait to see" what they look like, it might be a while!

It was a bit windy outside when the kids were holding it, but that's just the weather we have right now.

Oh yes, the border--someone asked about it. It is as follows--cut sizes, not finished sizes--: strips of white/off white - 3", strip of blue (or red or yellow) - 1.5", a strip of 2" misc. blocks sewn together, and then repeat: blue, 1.5", and then lastly, white/off white 3" strip. I like it, it is simple and uses yet more scrappy squares!

I love them all. Thanks for sharing, I earlier saved the directions for making the block. I love that it uses so much of the stash. It is on my to do list for sure.
