It’s Bright and Colorful Just Like the Season!
This festive little quilt embodies the fun, sunny spirit of summer. Celebrate the season by displaying it on your wall every year.
Small amounts of vivid colors against white make it perfect for scraps. You may already have everything you need in your stash.
The row-by-row quilt was presented as a quilt-along by the designer, Julie Cefalu from The Crafty Quilter. Consequently, construction is broken down into bite-sized tutorials.
If you dislike applique, the word “Summer” can be omitted. Julie offers these substitution ideas:
You could substitute another 2 1/2″ wide sashing strip of background fabric in its place.
Find a rainbow-colored fabric or a summer scene print to replace this section with.
Add a row of your favorite quilt block instead. You could make five 6 1/2″ squares of something. Maybe paper piecing is your thing.
The finished quilt is 30″ x 32″.
You’ll find all of the construction steps at the following link.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
