Description

Sometimes I am inspired by a pattern and I find fabric for it. Sometimes I am inspired by fabric and I find a pattern that I think will work well. In this case, I saw the pattern and immediately thought of the Lucy's Crab Shack line by Sweetwater. I had been admiring it, but I haven't used a novelty fabric before and wasn't really sure how to use it. I love the vintage, surfer-dude, beachiness of this fabric and I think the pattern will really show off that cute clothes-on-the-line print. I am going to use that one in the center. I purchased yardage and a layer cake so I hope to be able to utilize as many of the prints as possible in the pinwheels. And yes, I am pulling out the white Kona again! I promise my next quilt will have no white!

Oh, this is going to be wonderful. I also bought this fabric (a jelly roll and some yardage) and I have no idea what I'm going to do with it. I'll look forward to seeing this one come together!!

I also bought Lucy's Crab Shack - 2 Layer Cakes worth. I am planning to use 'Inside Out' pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew http://www.cluckclucksew.com/2012/04/inside-out.html

I also purchased Sweetwater's Reunion and I am going to use it in the reverse pattern of the pattern I'll use for LCS.

It's hard for me to see the pattern you're using, what is it called?

I can't see it when it's finished!

Msminnesota

Never mind my question about the pattern - I see the title in your project details!

This is awesome...love the center fabric and perfect use for it and rest plays it up nicely!

So cute and love the pinwheels. Looks like it was a fun one to make!

Caribousmom

Still loving this one!! And you won't get any argument with me over the use of white in quilts - I can't seem to stop doing that myself!!

Thesewingchick

Caribousmom Yeah, who was I kidding - I have an entire bolt of white Kona and I love it!

What a fabulous quilt! I don't know how I missed this one until just now. Sigh, so many quilts on this site it's sometimes hard to keep up. LOVE the white. I haven't bought a bolt of it yet but can see myself doing so soon.

True

Love your outdoor pictures...and so jealous of that beach and water to go with your beautiful quilt!

Melcollette

The quilting is perfect! I'm in love with this line too- I just finished making a quilt using several of its fabrics. Your choice for the center feature fabric was great!!
