Summer Quilt

Here's my latest work-in-progress. This is just the quilttop as I haven't cut the flannel sheet for batting or put the back together yet. It's made up of 5 inch square cotton fabrics, and quite a few of the squares are cut from repurposed clothing. I really like how this mix of florals and graphic dots and stripes came together. I'm not sure why I'm so attracted by this combination of blues, greens, yellows, and oranges, but I can't look at it without thinking of summer. Blue skies, green grass, lemonade, and Dreamsicles. Pools, oak leaves, sunshine, and cantaloupes. Blueberries, geraniums, fireflies, and peaches.

Excuse me, I want to go crawl in that hammock now.
