Summer quilt time

Now the weather is warming up, I tend to change my darker, wintry quilts for lighter, fresher "summer" quilts.
By doing this I tend to get in the "mood" for spring...and also a bit of spring cleaning! The number of blankets are reduced & the bedding aired in the glorious sunshine...don't you love that fresh smell? This quilt was from a pattern called Tag sale by miss Rosie's Quilt Co. DH gave me the pattern & some fat quarters to which I added some more fabrics. I like the faded softness & scrappiness of this quilt...it was peaceful to construct & it always makes me feel fresh!

The sun is shining here, too - for a change - hope it stays! Love that quilt, isn't it a quaint idea to set out eh 9-patches that way!

Pretty, pretty quilt. We are just going into fall here, but I'm still thinking about summer colors :)

That is such a pretty quilt ! I'll have to wash my windows again after all the dust to let the sunshine in .

LOVE the quilt...enjoy your windows open and that fresh air blowing thru the house. We are entering fall and pretty soon winter so I'm adding heavier quilts to our beds....
