Things have been very busy in the Quilt Kisses household, but I did manage to finish one more quilt last year. Not only was Bunny settling into our family, but we added a Shih Tzu puppy. Yeah, I'm still in shock that we have a dog. Cheetah and Bunny absolutely love him.
What was amazing was that I was able to make this quilt start to finish in less than three days. A cause can make things happen. Scatter Sunshine was a gift for a friend just about to start chemo therapy.
This was my fabric pull. The yellow is actually an ombre fabric. I didn't use the lightest portion of it, because I wanted it to contrast with the white backgrounds. It was all from stash and scraps. The minky backing was also from my stash. (When I see good minky on sale I buy it.)
My inspiration for the quilt was from the Covered in Love disappearing nine blocks a couple years ago. In one day I had a finished quilt top.
I loaded it on the Q24 for some free motion quilting. I used the spirals and paisleys combo again.
I love how they look together.
This was such a fun quilt to make. I have almost enough fabric to make another. One may be for me in the future. ;)
It is crazy to think that it is the same pattern as the pink one I made last year.
That just goes to show what a difference fabric choices make in the overall quilt! My favorite fabric in Scatter Sunshine was an alphabet print (Best in Class Letter Toss). It makes for a fun game of I Spy.
You can see a portion of the binding in the picture above. It was a black and white heart print. I love how it turned out.
I think it is ready for a good snuggle, finishing about 60 x 72 inches.
I hope to share some projects I made for Bunny soon.
