Floating on Sunshine
“Floating on Sunshine” is an illusion quilt. Hopefully, the blocks look like they are tumbling in space. It is inspired by a pattern by Karen Combs.
The trick to any illusion quilt is fabric choices in light, medium and darks. I have chosen bright colors for my blocks because I knew I wanted to use the colorful African border.
The background fabric choice is also important. I chose a dark teal background with gold specks for my background to make the colorful blocks stand out.
“Floating on Sunshine” measures 46 X 57 inches. I pieced it on my Janome sewing machine and then had it machine quilted by my friend Maxine Moore. I love the wavy quilt pattern in the background. I think it adds to the story of the quilt — floating.
The fabric on the back is a happy yellow with butterflies and fruit. There is a hanging sleeve on the back for easy display and a label that documents the quilt. I signed it on the front.
This quilt is one-of-a-kind.
