A quilt made for a  friends first granddaughter.  I named it summertime due to all the wonderful summer colors.  It was based on this windy days quilt from the moda bakeshop.  I modified the pattern (as if I could ever just follow what is written).  I never seem to have the correct number of charm packs or other fabrics needed for the patterns.  I used a charm pack of Kate Spain central park and moda bella solids.  As usual clicking on the pictures will expand them.

 For the back I went to a local fabric store Fields Fabrics which has a great sale section and found the dot from connecting threads fabric.  I was impressed with the quality as others on the web have suggested that connecting threads fabrics are nice and cost effective.  I was able to incorporate some left over HST.
Back using extra HST

 I also used my embroidery machine an added the initials of the granddaughter in pink of course.  I really like the Central Park fabric.

  I am entering this one in the Summer Sewing Contest quilt category just hoping for the luck of the draw
