Designer Creations!!

So the other day I was browsing for fun new projects to share with you guys and I just so happened to land on Camille Roskelley's blog Simplify and saw that she was working on a super fun and simple quilt using one of my favorite collections from this year, Summersville by Lucie Summers!! 

Such a great collection full of fun, screen-printing style illustrations in bright and cheery colors is perfect for a host of different projects. I love how Camille decided to break these busy little prints down to 2.5" squares so they could work together nicely! (Psst! This quilt design is perfect for using up Moda's new Mini Charm Packs!)

She cut her strips from Summersville Layer Cakes to save a little time and we still have some in the shop!! You can even use Charm Packs as you will get 4 total 2.5" squares from each piece in the pack! Not bad when 42 come in each stack!

At first, she thought about doing the entire quilt out of the 2.5" squares but a bit of white sashing between the blocks won out...I don't blame her one bit! It gives the eye a nice break, not to mention your hand! I don't know about you but I never want to strain my relationship with my rotary cutter...no bueno!!

And here it is in the process of being quilted!! How lovely is this design?? Some of the prints in this collection can definitely be used for the kiddo specific projects but when they're cut up into these little doses, it just reads absolutely lovely!! And how great is the quilting she did on the sashing?? LOVING IT!!!
We still have plenty of this sweet little collection available in the shop so scoop up on some of these cute prints and start creating something new! And if you'd love to recreate this design, check out Camille's blog! She doesn't give full instructions but she shares plenty of info for you to figure your own design out! Gotta love that!
Happy Sewing Yall!! And don't forget to tag upload those creations on Facebook and tag us!! We'd love to see what you're doing!!
