This is my idea of a very cheerful quilt for spring.
It’s not a cheerful day, weather-wise, so the lighting doesn’t show the full extent of it’s cheerfulness. In person, you’d immediately feel like it was a sunny day with flying citrus fruit overhead.
This was a mystery quilt from a class. We got the instructions one at a time and didn’t know how the final quilt would look. The two borders on the outside are additions I made to frame in the flying fruit and to tie the borders back to the middle of the quilt. When it’s quilted, I think I’ll use it on days when I feel especially grumpy.
