Scrap Happy Saturday--Walking On Sunshine

I'm officially here, and on time, with my Scrappy Saturday blog post. I won't mention that it took me three months...after all this is a hobby right? It's supposed to be fun!

This pattern is called Twinkle. Originally I had thought I was going to make my center stars in black and white, but when I auditioned some fabric yesterday, I didn't care for it. The pattern cover has a red star (and when we made this quilt for Marion in 2012, I used both red and purple stars), but this pink fabric called to me from my stash. It looks great with the yellow fabrics we are using this month. I know that it will be less vibrant with some of the other colors in the fabric rainbow, but I'm going for it.

I made three blocks!
I made two like this. It's funny though, because the large prints cut up differently, they don't look the same.
These are my "uglier" yellow Kaffe Fassett prints, but they play nicely together.
These are large blocks, finishing to 14.5 inches square. The quilt calls for 42 blocks, but I think I'm going to make 49 so it will be bigger. I need to go back and make my Twinkle blocks for January and February. They are cut out and ready to sew.

Thanks for visiting! Linking up with great joy and fanfare to Scrap Happy Saturday.

Pugs and kisses,
Nancy

  10. What a great pattern. I'm not usually a yellow fan but I think it looks great with the pink. And I like that there are large scraps in this one -- I have a whole bunch if those to use up. Might have to try this pattern!
