It's hot in Portland. That's not something I say a whole lot. Oregon is a wet and moderate place, our beaches are misty and the spring is soggy but about or twice during summer the temperatures spike and we blast the sprinkler.
Summer weather requires a summer quilt. A summer weight quilt.
This one started with little-little left over half square triangles. I could not resist sewing them together and making chaos blocks from them. My term for random HST goodness.
I made this for my son and he loves to wrap up in the flannel and denim blue linen.
The new-ish Moda line Summersville by Lu Summers makes up most of the HST's. The solids are the cotton couture by Michael Miller; PMQG had a challenge with the lovely fabrics and I used the remainder.
I did a small amount of echo quilting around the framed chaos blocks and it gives the quilt a nice drape. Very nice to wrap around the shoulders or bundle up a little one.
As the hot days give way to brown leaves this quilt will stay for winter.
