You Are My Sunshine 🌞

My quiltin' cousin, Sue, made this wonderful quilt for her son! 

The pattern is "You Are My Sunshine" from the booklet, Slice of Home by Creekside Stitches. It's a layer cake friendly pattern, or you can cut from stash like Sue did. Here's a close-up:


I quilted it with "Verve". For backing Sue used a very dark, extra-wide purple Grunge:

Great job, Sue!!! Perfect for a man-sized bed!

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  1. That's the same block I used for my mystery, only I didn't know it had been made into a pattern. Judy Hopkins calls the block "Hopkins Square." It is SO versatile!

  13. Gorgeous! I thought for a minute it was one of the mystery quilts I've been seeing that were made with a very similar block. So much interesting movement with those diagonal lines, and I love Sue's color choices :)
