Breezy Quilt, #2

While making the Breezy #1 quilt top, I thought it'd be fun to have more colors in the background.  For Breezy #1, I used Kona Windsor and Coty.  For Breezy #2, I used Kona Turquoise, Chartreuse, Citrus, Red, and Surf.  Thank heavens for a fabric stash!

This is a fun finish for me.  Each month I make 4 quilt blocks, 2 to donate to my quilt guilds' Charity BOM project, and 2 to keep for quilts like this one.  One of the blocks in this quilt are from a class I took at Quiltcon a couple of years ago.  The quilt back is made from fabric I purchased; I thought it was printed madras patchwork.  So much for thinking, it's actually pieced; lots of squares of madras sewn together.

May your bobbins always be full,


  1. Would you be comfortable sharing how much of each solid you used, if you know? I'd like to establish a habit of making extra blocks to put together quilts for our local Ronald McDonald House, which gives a quilt (or blanket) to each family who stays with them. It would be good to stock up on some cheerful solids when they go on sale online, even before I have all of my blocks lined up and ready.

    1. I'm sorry I can't help you. I just pulled from my stash! Just guessing I would say about 1 yard each color.

  2. Thanks, Jan. That gives me a good starting point--I'm a terrible estimator, so I might easily have doubled. (Which wouldn't be the worst thing in the world, but would have limited my color choices, due to budgeting.) I enjoy your blog and am always nudged to think about my orphan blocks and also about making the most of my quilting time--to wit, making an additional block while I'm at it.
