sunwashed star

just 45 days before the following loveliness can leave our shoppe!  mom is working so very hard to get our Quilt MN 2013 samples all finished up, so we can get kits tied and ready.  i do have a sneak peek of our free 9 inch block pattern though…which will be featured in our Sunwashed quilt.

check out Sunwashed Star below…mom has started the stars and made them a little more scappy and the blocks are done with an unbleached muslin instead of the cream blender.  (i may be biased but the blocks are AWESOME!)

Sunwashed will use 17 fat quarters (so a fat quarter of each print) and muslin background and ruffle…yes, ruffle.  we are so excited to see the end result.


here are some close-ups of the fabrics.  if you haven’t noticed, mom and i absolutely love this year’s quilt mn.  the colors are little bit softer and fit into our style just a tad more than the bolder quilt mn of years past.


mom is going to rework the Frosted Windowpanes from quilt mn year 4 and use the 5 inch panel, a narrow ruffle, and one of these stripes.


the blenders this year include:  brick, gold, tan, cream, green, blue, and brown.  i will probably roll up some fat quarter bundles of these.  perfect colors for stashbuilding or applique.
