A Bit of Whimsy

Jane's most recent quilt top is light and airy, with a touch of improv and a soft blue/teal vibe that is totally soothing.

She used a bundle of summery fabrics that just make you smile. Like these happy little pups.

And retro lawn chairs in both coral...

and black.

And how about these fun camper vans? Remind you of the Jetsons?

The centre is constructed of a simple randomly placed three-piece block with muted greys, greens and bright yellows taking centre stage (I've cropped this a little squarer than the block really is - it's a little more rectangular).

In addition to rectangles in the borders, top and bottom she has included a funky large black and white polka dot which just elevates the whole thing in a great way and works so well with the beautiful large floral that surrounds it. Can you tell that she had fun making this one? 

We've been displaying the Quilts for Survivors quilt tops that have been donated so far after our service every Sunday during coffee hour so that more people can see what we've been up to and to encourage them to donate a bit towards shipping costs, so tomorrow it's this one's turn to shine....M
