Clover Sunshine: Alison Glass Designs Blog Hop!

Clover Sunshine Treasure Hunt Quilt
I am thrilled to be playing along on the Alison Glass Designs Blog Hop today! We are
celebrating her upcoming release Clover Sunshine this week. I can’t think of a prettier
fabric line that has come along recently. This one is just so…. happy. It’s
absolutely perfect.
Treasure Hunt Quilt in Clover Sunshine
The colors are rich and bright and speak to me of fall, but not the pumpkin side so
much as the plums, blue skies, cooler weather and being able to go outside after the
heat of summer and have some fun. I’m so thrilled with how this little baby quilt
turned out. My points aren’t perfect (or even close!) but I had a lot of fun making it.
And I smile every time I look at it.

Clover Sunshine Treasure Hunt Quilt
This is Alison’s second full collection. Her first fabric line, Lucky Penny, totally
captured my heart. Her recent Sun Print Basics have flown off of our shelves. If you
haven’t seen them, you can find them “https://www.etsy.com/shop/westwoodacres/search?search_query=Sun+print&order=date_desc&view_type=gallery&ref=shop_search”>
here. Clover Sunshine should be arriving soon and I can’t wait to see what everyone
makes with it! So, would you like a chance to work with some of these pretty fabrics?
Alison is very generously offering up a fat
quarter of all of her recent and upcoming fabrics! Hop on over to her blog for a chance to win (and make sure to
follow her @alisonglass on Instagram to keep up with all the pretty fabric peeks!

    Hi Amanda, I’ve been watching this grow on instagram and I absolutely love it. I love how it goes together but not in a matchy matchy way, and I’m pondering whether I add this quilt to the make list!! I must say, I’m not sure where you live, maybe the UK? but the hills behind the quilt could so easily be anywhere in the south island of New Zealand where I live. It’s not wonder so many folk came and colonised here, the country looks so similar.

    Would love to wrangle those children, but alas! I am so far away. Putting my starflower top together today, so wish me luck!

    And I love the way your quilt turned out. No one but you will notice the points. I promise. =)

    Your Mom, of course! (And I had that thought as soon as I read your last sentence – LOL.). Like I said on your IG photo, this is happy fabric. Your description is spot on – clear skies & crisp nights.

    I would love to come & mind your youngsters, only problem I see is the distance! I love this quilt sooo much! Again congrats

    As to the starflowers, I’ve had to stop as we have workman in redoing walls and the mess is horrific so I’ve packed up my sewing! Annoying but necessary.

    Wow, those colors! So rich, so saturated, so delicious!

    I’m not sure which is more strikingly beautiful, the quilt itself or the background in the picture. Great work on the quilt, it’s beautiful and very, very happy!

    Amanda, I love that pretty pattern!! So many points on that quilt but it is gorgeous as all of your quilts are :). Looks like your new place has a very pretty view! I think the kids would enjoy a few laps around the fence!
