Sunshine and Shadow Progress

I was out visting blogs today and found myself over at Nadine's blog (Friendship Threads) and was amazed at the progress she had made with her Sunshine and Shadow quilt. I love her color combinations. It is going to be a stunner. Stop by and see her progress.

I wanted to show you another version of a Sunshine and Shadow quilt. I took a picture of this quilt while on vacation in Pennsylvania at the Chester County Historical Society. I like the color combinations in this quilt.

I know that it is not the usual solid color that the Amish use but it is still very striking to see in person. The colors all seem to blend in together to make it look like stripes.

This is a closer view. Look at how the colors seem to blend in to each other.

These are my strips for my Sunshine and Shadow. I haven't made much progress but the weekend is near. More time to quilt. Hooray!!! Hooray!!!
I plan on putting my on-going quilt block as a side bar as soon as my DS comes over. I have decided to turn it into a year long quilt. From Sept 2009 to Sept 2010 without stopping the chain. I can cut blocks and make things but I cannot stop the chain. I have over 200 inches at this time. I plan on working on it every Tuesday at Sit and Sew. The Lutheran church near my job has a sit and craft night every Tuesday. You bring whatever you want to work on and socialize with other crafters. In my case ooh and aah. One of my co-worker's mother is a quilter and she attends every Tuesday. She does not attend the church but will find out if I can attend since she was invited by a friend. Keep your fingers crossed. The sit and sew I attend is about a 30-40 minute drive from my job and it is every 2nd and 4th Tuesday. The nice part is it is at a quilt shop and you can buy fabric or supplies if you need it. Maybe I will attend both.
Lots of quilting.

  1. Stunning Log Cabin ! THANKS for showing, Jeri!
    Now, I'm sure YOUR Sunshine & Shadow will be a heirloom. Remember YOU chose the fabrics, YOU wrote the instructions sheet, and YOU sent them all to me ? How could I do wrong with such clever choices and explanations ?
    You go, go, my friend, one stitch at a time ;>)
