Summer in Suburbia

I grew up in a Suburban neighborhood full of kids. And I had a ton of fun. This quilt is in memory of all the baseball I played in backyards and the night games we played until our parents called us in. I used a random smattering of houses, baseball diamonds, lawns, and sidewalks.
 I love this line by Jen Kingwell for Moda. It is called Moving On and is a lovely lawn, so silky smooth. It was a delight to work with and made the perfect summer quilt.
 The pattern is available here. I'm linking  up with Sarah and Amanda Jean to celebrate this summer finish.
Oh, and I almost forgot to announce the winners for last weeks giveaway. The random number generator picked #10 Mary from Needled Mom and #22 Linda who said," Your Modern Gems quilt is awesome! Congrats on the publication in Quick Quilts. Also, thanks for giving us a chance at this generous giveaway." Please send me your snail mail and I'll get your prizes on their way.

  1. That is really beautiful. Looking at the photo, I see a tall glass of summer lemonade hiding in the upper left hand side!!! I'm sure those fabrics were planned for that. ;-)

    Thanks so much for the giveaway, Em. I'm looking forward to seeing the fun magazine.
