Bright Hopes, Summer Dreams

Despite my determination not to get sidetracked from the projects I'm already working on, I did. On Sane, Crazy, Crumby Quilting, I saw a project she was piecing called Bright Hopes. She shared the link to the original designer, Red Pepper Quilts. It really intrigued me. No matter how I told myself no, I couldn't resist.


I pulled light background fabrics, a few colors too and started to sew. This is fun! I'm going to call my quilt Summer Dreams since it's summertime and I dream about making quilts while driving tractor.

This will be a long term project unless I get tired of slow piecing and decide to get 'er done.

Just a reminder, I won't be posting for the month of August, see you in September!

  1. I can't believe the variety of low-volume prints you have! That is one area in which my stash is low. (Hard to believe right?) This is going to look fantastic. You are as bad as I am about starting new things, but I try not to feel too guilty about it. If I've got the fabric, then I say I make whatever I want, no matter how many other quilts I have going at the time!

  2. Lovely! All those light fabrics together to give this a summery feel. Enjoy the summer, and I hope your farm duties leave you some time for sewing.
