It’s been a particularly unproductive week. We’ve been having some crazy and unseasonably cold weather lately which means that the kids have either been off school or had a two hour late start for most of the week and it’s really thrown off everyone. The kids were really grumpy when they had to go to school at their normal time because they were really hoping to squeeze in those couple hours of cartoons in the morning.
I barely got anything done because kids always find you most interesting when you’re trying to accomplish something. Youngest has been really excited to show off his reading skills so he’s constantly following me around asking if he can read me a book and the oldest recently picked up a microbiology book from the library (I swear he picked it out on his own! He’s totally my kid…) and kept running in to tell me another factoid about bacteria. I finally just gave up trying to get anything done and embraced the chaos of the snow day. Well, around here it’s probably more appropriate to call it an ice day, but either way it means I’m stuck at home with energetic kids all day.
Despite all the chaos I was able to finish this sunshine quilt project! I had totally intended to finish it up a couple weeks ago, but you know how that goes.
This is actually the second time I’ve made this design. When I originally made it I had intended it to be a one of a kind quilt but it was so popular in my store I made another one!
I love how bright and cheerful it is! I’m a big fan of bold and bright colors. I tend to pick fabrics based on what I like and what I think will go together so I don’t usually stick with one designer or company. Unfortunately this was made using fabrics from my stash so I doubt any of these fabrics are still available.
I could probably make 50 of these and it would still make me smile when I’m done. I don’t know what it is about this little guy, but I just love looking at it! Maybe it’s because I’m in Oregon and haven’t seen the actual sun since October. Whatever the reason, this was a cheerful end to a gray and dreary week.
This sunshine baby quilt is available in my store!
