Default Summer Bright

This 50 x 60 quilt began life as test blocks. DD changed the size of the Snowball block and Puss in the Corner blocks so needed test it before beginning another T-Shirt quilt. The focus fabric (remnants of a sheet) and the yellow were Goodwill purchases, the orange was from stash and the backing is a Walmart sheet. After completing two test blocks I decided to use up all of the focus fabric and make more quilt blocks. Don't look too closely at the quilting as it is the first quilt I have quilted on my HQ Sweet 16. I pieced the quilt top on my Singer Featherweight. Thank goodness there are not any Quilt Police around here, they would go crazy with this one.

I really had fun making and quilting this quilt. I sure helps brighten up our very gloomy, gloomy summer here in Western Washington.
