Easy As Summer (v2)

Another cot-sized quilt, the 'partner' to Version 1, both made from a charm pack of Kate Spain 'Terrain', using the 'Easy As 10' pattern by Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobsen (aka Me and My Sister Designs).  I got the pattern from their book ' Simple Quilts, Easy As 1, 2, 3').

Measures 37" x 45"
The back is made from yardage of a lovely soft lavender paisley.

I used one of the built-in embroidery stitches on my machine, a line of loops, along the edges of the white sashing (just to try something different).

And in the charm squares I FMQ'd whatever motif I felt like - a flower, criss-cross, wonky lines etc - to 'match' the design in the fabric. The purple sashing strips have been quilted with a loopy stipple.

This is another goal completed from my 3rd Quarter list for the 2016 Finish Along!

A happy wintery "Hello!" from Southland to all my quilting friends visiting via Kelly's Needle and Thread Thursday (where I am excited to see she has selected my Mermaids quilt as a highlight from last week's linky party!!) and also to those visiting from Amanda Jean/Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday!


  1. Congrats on the feature over at My Quilt Infatuation, love those mermaid quilts! This Kate Spain has such a pretty color scheme. Great finish for Q3!

    1. Thanks Judy, I am pleased I separated the two colour-ways and made two different quilts. Not sure which one I like the most though so I won't pick a fave!

  2. Very pretty! On behalf of the FAL cohosts, thanks for participating this quarter!
