I have been hoping for a good quilt along to participate in this summer. There have been a few I have considered but they were just not quite what I was yearning for.
Well my wish was answered and in a couple days, the Summer Solstice Quilt Along with Melissa over at Happy Quilting is starting! If you have not participated in one of Melissa's quilt alongs you have been missing out.
This one will be my fourth time sewing along. You can see my previous finishes here, here, and here.
Here is a picture from Melissa's site of the pattern. Isn't it wonderful! I am going to make mine the picnic size with nine 24" blocks.
I have decided to try and use two shades of teal for the background. I haven't quite decided what will go where - it will depend a bit on how the instructions are written.
For the stars, I pulled some reds, oranges and yellows from my stash.
I don't think I will need to do any shopping for this quilt!
There is still time for you to join in the fun. The cutting instructions come out on Thursday of this week. You can read more about it and find the schedule and fabric requirements here.
Anyone else in on this one?
