Wowzers! This is to date the biggest quilt I have ever made. Poor Mike didn't even know where to start when holding it up! His extendable arms were out of service.
The project started as the 2016 Sugar Block of the Month Club. Then after a few months of blocks I didn't love it turned into "all my favorite blocks club". Makes perfect sense this has become my favorite quilt!
Sugar Blocks = Favorite Blocks, July Sugar Blocks, Sugar Block Club: May + June , Sugar Block of the Month Update, February Sugar Block, Sugar Block of the Month
The color combinations in this quilt makes my heart flutter. I love the aqua, magenta, peach, mustard combination with some chambray. Swoon.
When finishing this quilt on retreat, I went to a local quilt shop (Thimbleberries on Cape Cod). There I found more of the Kate Spain fabric I used in the quilt for the border. I had been looking with no luck, so that was my lucky day! Not being a border person, I love what it adds to this particular quilt. May need to rethink borders ...
For the backing, I used the other sheet from my "Today is a Good Day for a Good Day" Quote quilt. They actually match in colors, binding and backing. Oh, and awesomeness! Love this pair.

It's economical and worked great both times :)
If only I could snuggle under them both at the same time without looking like a crazy quilt lady!
