Sunrise Serenade

Jan, The Colorful Fabriholic, sent me an inspiration picture of a log cabin quilt made with thrifted shirts….right up my ally 🙂 I couldn’t stop thinking about it so pulled some shirting fabrics, then some more and then some more and got to work with my 1.5″ studio cutter die.

Then COVID hit and I began working from home. No longer having a 50 minute commute each way to work and that whole the stay at home thing gave me more sewing time……so the blocks really began accumulating 🙂

Then I outgrew my design wall in the basement and graduated to the temporary, improvised design wall in the guest room upstairs.

Getting to the really dark rounds (bad morning light)

By Mid April I had all the blocks done and on the design wall.

Blocks are Finished!

On May 30 all the blocks were sewn together, woo hoo, Corona was a flimsy!! Lois, (thanks Lois!!) said, “You may not call that quilt Corona! Make something ugly and depressing to call Corona!” I think that means she likes 🙂 So here it is all sewn together and I love it.

Sunrise Serenade flimsy!

I don’t have a backing yet but have decided to go with yardage rather than piecing something. I just need it to have the same vibe, you know?

Happy Quilting, Cherie

  1. I love it!!! As Julie said, so very You. I can’t wait to see it in person. If you like, I have four yards of a sunny yellow daisy print you could have for backing.

  2. Love it !I have shirtinig pieces leftover from making a memory quilt for a relative, plus some thrifted shirts I bought to round out color choices for the memory quilt. Now I know what to do with them.
