    I hadn't sewed in 25 years, but got back into quilting a few months ago. This is my second project, I wasn't crazy about the colors in my first quilt. This pattern is "Sunny Days" by Darlene Zimmerman, but I made the blocks 9.5" instead of 6.5" so the fabrics would be seen better (and no tiny triangle squares!). I can't wait to finish it and see it quilted!

    This will be 6x6 9" blocks, pieced border

    Very pretty colors and I do like them in the bigger size. This is cheerful and bright and is pleasing to the eye. Look forward to seeing this done. Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks everyone! My son said, "it looks like Easter" which is just the soft look I was going for.

    I love your fabrics! I also went back to quilting after a 25+yr layoff, it's amazing what you remember. And it's lots more fun this time around, I've left most of the perfectionism compulsion behind!

    Can't wait to see it finished.

    I love it... it looks great! Of course, I love anything in Aunt Grace / 1930's fabric. Excellent job!
