Lemon Lime Hourglass

IMG_7329

The last time I made this quilt it was for my own pink bundle…man that went by fast!

I used this tutorial, and this fabric bundle.

I love this quilt because it is modern but classic, and perfectly gender neutral in these colors.  The backing is a Marmalade pinwheel print…it looks so great with the front.

The binding is Bella Solids in Aqua. 

I have this quilt for sale here….or I have a few quilt kits for sale here they sold out fast!  I’ll let you know if I get more.

I’m craving these bright colors after taking all of my Christmas décor down…my house looks bare! 

And for all of you on a New Year’s diet:

Ahahahaha! That's hilarious, though I've always wanted to try making doughnuts…

Beautiful quilt. :-)

Anita said...

Yummy! Are you going to post the recipe? I was just going to try baked ones, but those look really good :)

Teje Karjalainen said...

Your new quilt is again so beautiful! I love simple patterns and beautiful colours with white!
I wish there was some doughnuts at my home now! Happy New Year! x Teje

This is a great quilt! Do you know of anybody who will quilt quilts in the Seattle area? I just moved north of Seattle and would like to find somebody who isn't too crazy expensive. Thanks!

As I stick to the classical definition of diet = way of living you can't shock me!
Your doughnuts look yummy! I have never made doughnuts, they're not so common here in Germany.
May I have your recipe please? :-)

Kate said...

Yum! I haven't packed away my Christmas stuff yet, it's too hot to even think about it.

Katy said...

I hope no one buys those quilt kits before I get to them! Love the fabric choices - and thank you very much for putting together quilt kits b/c then I don't have to choose and can rely on your good eye!

But my quilt making (yes, I'm FINALLY a quilt maker...I've done two in the last few months!!!) will take a temporary hold with a new baby girl arriving her in just a few weeks!

I love the summery colors!

Love the donuts and in our home, we make wonderful low fat ones that are amazingly delish!
Your quilt is beautiful! I wish I could figure out triangle as you have. Happy New Year!

I so love this pattern. I am currently making this quilt using your tutorial already in a purple and aqua. I hope to finish it in the next couple of weeks.

Cecilia said...

I love the way this quilt looks. Your colors are so pretty. I wish I ad some of those doughnuts. :-)

Unknown said...

But what if doughnuts are your New Year's diet?

Happy New Year...and happy making! With the fridged temps in Seattle now, i think you've picked the perfect things to console yourself with: quilts and doughnuts!

the girlfriend gap said...

laughing to tears!!!! at the doughnuts!! I've been eating homemade cinnamon rolls since new years day! and thinking about loosing weight. HA HA. I love your quilt. I have been thinking about making an hour glass quilt.... I was going to just use a layer cake now wondering about adding white. Thank you for so much inspiration here at your blog. I have two of your patterns on this years to do list:) happy thursday! Janita

Rana said...

Hilarious!!
And you look so darn sweet!

Pam said...

OH YUM, doughnuts, I have not made them for years, I stick to sweet buns and cinnamon rolls.

Allison said...

Gary- I can't find your email or a blog to respond to...but I send all my quilts out to a long arm quilter, her name is Kathy and her button is on my sidebar towards the top..and she's not crazy expensive! :) Hope that helps and that you see this!

Way cute - love the bundle - I just might have to hop on over to "Everyday" and get me one! (Thanks for the plug to Gary.)
Oh my - donuts! You're killin' me!

Charity said...

Pretty quilt, it's nice to see that shade of blue paired with something other than red for once. =)
Mmm, doughnuts! I've tried making homemade before, but what I really need is an awesome apple fritter recipe. Those are my favorites. =)

Carla said...

Another beautiful finish ; ) so fresh looking and fun.

I love your quilts! I have at least 4 of your patterns. You make things look easy, even making donuts, but me no, I'm trying to eat that 2 pounds of See's candy!

Elizabeth's quarters said...

Love the fruity colours, and the sugary doughnuts.

I'm loving those fresh bright colors! Way to beat the winter blues. And the backing is perfect...great choice. As for the doughnuts...wish I could pluck one off the screen and into my gullet! Think you might have to share the recipe for those.

Bari Jo said...

bahahahah - please share the recipe!

Jessie said...
