Celebrate!

 It's been a while since I've shared anything on this space, I always underestimate the holidays.  I love the busy-ness that surrounds them with special activities and traditions, but I also look forward to getting back to normal life.  I have several quilts to share, starting with this one.  The pattern is called Celebrate, by Cluck Cluck Sew, and I was able to sew up the blocks quickly.  Such a simple, but happy pattern.  I think this would be so cute as a baby quilt.
I'm surprised that I have been drawn to this dark green color lately.  Reminds me of my high school days (hunter green).
 I didn't think I liked my bindings to be light (or almost white), but lately I seem to be leaning that way often.  I like that it doesn't draw my eye to it, disappearing into the quilt (almost).
 For the quilting, I went with scallops...oh boy, they are definitely imperfect, but that's okay.  Nobody really notices anyway.  Plus, they are fun to do.

Finished size:   61" x 66"(after washing and drying)
Pattern: Celebrate by Cluck Cluck Sew

  1. Love everything about this - the design is simple but so effective! And scallop quilting is a perfect contrast to it!

  2. Always love your scrappy quilts!
    I agree that it would look great
    as a baby quilt.

  4. Another beauty! I really like the palette you used on this one -- and the shapes look a bit like teeth from a distance, which makes me smile.

  6. Looks great, I made one of these recently, but it's still only a top. A baby quilt in this pattern is a great idea
