Spring Quilt Festival - Hello Sunshine

My entry this spring is my most spring-like quilt, Hello Sunshine.  I finished this quilt in February, when I was tired of cold weather and was eagerly anticipating some warmth and sunshine. 


In starting this quilt, I chose the border fabric first, then selected coordinating colors and fabrics for the blocks.  The background is Kona Snow and all of the print fabrics are various Fig Tree prints.  At the beginning of the year, I decided it was time to use my lavish stash of fabrics from the varous lines by Fig Tree Desings for Moda and this was my first project in my Fig Tree Harvest.  I have since made a Dresden Plate quilt top but it is not quilted yet.  The two quilts have hardly put a dent in my Fig Tree stash so I have lots more to do!


I used a pattern called Changes, from Cotton Charm Quilts.  The finished quilt is 78 inches square.

You can see lots more quilts in Amy's Bloggers' Quilt Festival.

This is beautiful! I'm a sucker for green and pink, and the white helps to set it off. Thanks for sharing.

Very lovely quilt and definitely something to warm you up during the winter months. I also like your Burmuda Breeze. Some of my fav colors in that one. Check out my festival quilt. It's my first time and I'm very excited to share.
