Every year you get to here me complain about June Gloom. This year is no different. The marine layer has been very thick, meaning the clouds never burn off and no sun ever shines through along the coast. I have to make do, so I find my blue skies elsewhere. Like in this 18 inch pillow cover I finished this morning.These fabrics are from Amy Butler’s Lark and Soul Blossom collections. I love them. I’m particularly fond of the River Shine graphic with all of its charcoal and ivory glory. It sets off the blues so well. These are 2 1/2″ squares, just the right size to show off the design elements in the prints. It coordinates perfectly with the quilt I did for Generation Q’s first issue. Curious about that quilt?This is it! I haven’t seen my copy of the magazine yet, so I’m not sure what they had to say about it. As soon as I know, I’ll do another post with a few more details on how this quilt went from a stack of scraps to what you see here. (The magazine has the pattern for this quilt so be sure to get your copy if you think you want to make your own version.)
