Wonky Pastel Summer Quilt

My new thing this week is putting together a great Wonky Quilt using a variety of pastels in pinks and greens and blues.  I basically followed the pattern called Off Your Rocker by Carolina Patchworks.

Talk about fun!  To make a wonky quilt, you can stack and whack and cut your strips just about any way you like.  It's a like a carousel that goes up and down, circles around, and comes back to the starting point.

This calls for 20 fat quarters - talk about a fabric spree - an open opportunity to grab and mix and match - so much fun!

 And these colors are just right to lift my spirits to get in the mood for spring. Our snow is finally melted off the valley floor. Another few weeks and we'll have daffodils popping up (being in the mountains, our growing season severely lags from most everyone else!)

I do know that this quilt makes me happy! And I had so much fun making it.  If a quilt can put a smile on your face, isn't it worth it?
