Summer Breeze Quilt

A little over a year ago, I purchased some gorgeous fabric designed by Sweetwater called Sun Kissed and their quilt pattern called Summer Breeze.  I knew it would be fitting for Tenneille.  Originally I was going to make the quilt for her 5th birthday, but of course, that didn’t happen, however, it was completed in time for her 6th birthday.  I worked on it over about a period of about 5 months, in between other projects.  I ended up adding an extra border to the outside edge, as the original pattern was a little on the small side for a single bed quilt.  The finished size is approximately 55″x55″.  I could have made it a fraction bigger again, but I didn’t have enough material.  Still, it sits nicely on her bed and compliments her curtains and wall colour.   The fabric quality is excellent and the colours are just divine.  I must admit, Moda fabric is now one of my favourites.  I originally purchased the pattern and fabric from The Fat Quater shop.

I promise I didn't make her pose, this was Tenneille just being sweet.

I still have enough fabric to make up a cushion cover or two, hopefully I can do that before she turns 7!

    Its beautiful Jacinta! I love this range and wish I’d bought more than the two pieces I have of it! Looks like your little miss is very happy with it too. Hope she had a lovely birthday. By the way, I am still working on my middle son’s baby quilt. He’s 5….

    That is a beautiful quilt! I love that it can be used on both sides instead of having just one pretty side.

    Gorgeous colors in that, Jacinta! And I love that little banner/bunting that runs through the fabric pattern. Lovely work, as always. Your kids are lucky to have such a wonderfully craft mama!
