The Summer Breeze quilt is a top. I finished all the “alternating” squares in variations of chocolate brown. Some of it was precut 2-1/2″ strips that I had on hand. Others came from the bin of neutral fabrics. The cream colored fabrics together for the pinwheel blocks mostly were cut from the “background” fabric bin.
Sewing together the colored pinwheel blocks went quickly and really added to my block count for the month. After some debate, I decided to stick with the cranberry, orange and yellow wedding accent colors. The green wasn’t working for me in the pinwheels.
The quilt feels on schedule. The wedding is mid-October. Maybe, with a little luck, I will find a great print for the back that has the brown, cream and cranberry with all three accent colors–yellow, orange and that green.
Unbelievable that such a fabric would exist? I have a Kate Spain fabric in mind but it is an older collection and might not still be available.
