The Finished Sun Break

Here's the Sun Break quilt, just finished today and fresh out of the dryer, all crinkled up and lovely, taking a test drive in the grass. Fresh air? Check! Sunshine? Check! A chubby cheeked baby rolling on top? Well, it will have to take a long trip down under for that.

I used an old Old Red Barn quilt along for the pattern, with a range of pink, orange, grey and cream prints. I finished the top for this back in January, but it has been sitting in my stack of tops to be quilted since then.

I used the trimmings from the strip sets I cut into quilt blocks to make a little pillow. My daughter took this picture. She is a quite the budding photographer!

I adore curved corners and I think they are perfect on this quilt.

Curved corners might be my favorite thing about this quilt. I will be making more quilts with curved corners for sure. That little Japanese print is really cute... and I love the light, bright colors peeking through the greys too!

Now to figure out the best way to send this set all the way to New Zealand!
