Rapture fabrics and solid fabrics

solid quilt fabrics
Hello there! I am back home in Barcelona, missing Cali a lot already but also very happy to be with all the family again. We are traveling to Norway in two weeks...very exited/nervous! if you missed why we are moving to Norway and want know the full story, go back and read about it!

you know what the best way of dealing with the jet lag is? Guess what? Getting inspired and starting a new spring project! I bought a fat quarter bundle of the line Rapture by Pat Bravo some months ago and I kept it safe until now to make a spring quilt. I also have in my stash the perfect coordinating solid fabrics from Connecting Threads (Sapling, Coral Reef, Turquoise and Custard) and it turns out that they are my favorite colors...see the blog color palette? :)

half square triangle units nine patch quilt block

I am making nine patch blocks from half square triangle units. I think I will love this quilt...looking forward to show you the result!

I usually like to imagine a whole story behind the projects I do, this time I am mostly inspired by spring days, time outdoors, the sun and the beautiful colors of the flowers I see now everywhere. This quilt makes me think about a relaxed picnic day...

I've had fun picking some of the things I would bring with me to that picnic...:). I hope you enjoy it!
