"Winter Citrus"

I have given up all hope of seeing the sun again,


so nasty indoor photos will have to do.

I have recently finished putting together 

this quilt top....


"Bonnie Lass" from Quilt Lovely, 

my third Jen Kingwell finish!


I am calling this one "Winter Citrus", which I hope is 

self-explanatory.

Oranges, mandarines, limes!

Made entirely from stash, this is my next charity 

quilt!

I even have a vintage sheet ready for backing!

Happy sewing!

SUZ

  5. love that scrappy look and the pattern looks like fun to do.
    Our "rainy season" is now over but I think I could do with a cloud or two as it is now like a sauna.

  10. Very cute and very citrusy! We still have our kumquats and lemons on the trees, and the mandarins in the front yard are getting bigger. What a darling quilt. I love the bright pieces and the interesting way it's pieced. Here's hoping it brightens up your days!

  16. Oh, how delightful! Winter Citrus lives up to it's name, Suz. A glorious festival of citrus colours and fantastic assortment of low volume fabrics. Fresh and zingy!

  22. My favorite kind of quilt! Scrappy! I know what you mean about no sun! Finally we have had some sunshine days. I read that we have only had 6 days of sun and no rain in all of July!

  24. Once again proving that a simple pattern in great colours is hard to beat.
    We are having a grey, rainy few days here. More excuse to stay indoors and sew!

  27. Is this pattern in the book? I don't remember seeing it but your version makes me want to go bookmark it to make soon. The colors you chose remind me so much. If American Jane fabric. Very classic!
