Summer Solstice & April's "ALYOF"

Summer Solstice is a test pattern that I had the privilege to make. 
Marelize at Stitch By Stitch is the creator of this great pattern.
She has a exciting fun blog with allot of things happening!
If you can, stop by to see it!

These are the fabrics I had chosen and posted about HERE.
Most of the fabric comes from a great quilt store 
called  Mouse Creek Quilt Shop in Howell, New Jersey.

One of the things that drew me to this pattern was its appeal for the Traditional and the Modern quilter.

I normally do not sway towards quilts that have repeated blocks.
So I was a bit out of my comfort zone at first................

Until quickly realizing that there were 
3 different blocks--which made this 
construction interesting and fun to make.

It also had allot of open area to go 
crazy with freehand quilting.

I my close friend, quilter & photographer-
Denise at Nini And The Sea  helped me with photos.
So pour yourself some coffee and enjoy the view!

I highly recommend this quilt pattern!

Summer Solstice is my April's "ALYOF".

While we were taking photos, Denise had her incredible 
improv quilt also. However you will need to 
 keep your eye on Nini And The Sea blogspot for when she posts the details on this great quilt!
