We didn't even plan it that way. This was one of those moments when it becomes a little "psychic".
I started my Sunny Days up at Rae Ann's cabin. She informed me she had just bought the same pattern. Meanwhile Lori was having the same experience without talking to either me or Rae Ann.
Do you think we must have been ESP-ing each other without really realizing it?
We all showed up at my house and pulled out Sunny Days.
Strange. Same wave length. Kindred spirits?
I have been having the most wonderful time pulling fabrics for this quilt.
Every sun turns out bright and cheery.
This is the original pattern by Joyce Weeks.
I only have a few more blocks to go.
Doesn't this sun almost look on fire?
On the top of the picture you can see Lori's blocks on my design wall. She is using a red polka dot fabric as the background.
Lori also suggested making 25 blocks (instead of the 30 on the pattern) to make the quilt more square. I like her idea and will follow her lead.
Lori loves gingham and uses it in many of her quilts. This block mixes up the size of the checks. Another great idea.
I sure wish we lived closer. I'd be following her around, notepad in hand.
