Here Comes the Sun

Hi Quilting Friends,

Welcome to the “Here Comes the Sun” blog hop, hosted by our quilting friend Carol at “Just Let Me Quilt”. We’re looking forward to seeing all of the sunny quilting projects during today’s hop, and we hope that you’ll enjoy our project too.

Today marks the summer solstice in the Northern hemisphere, which means that today will be the longest day this year. (It is the winter solstice in the Southern hermisphere, and their shortest day of the year.) So get outside and enjoy some sunshine! Here’s one of our favorite sunshine songs-

Check out our sunny designs from projects past, all available in Ms P’s Pattern Shop!

Our 2022 quilt-along is called “Sunshine Sampler”, and Susan chose cool blues and sunny yellows to make this pretty quilt-

Susan’s fabric colors remind us of sunny summer days! Susan and Rosie have started quilting this lovely sampler, so we’ll share a picture when they have it all finished. Visit us on alternate Mondays to see each new block as it is presented.

Sharon enjoys walking in her neighborhood year-round, but especially in the summer. When spending time outdoors in the heat it is important to stay hydrated, so Sharon stitched up a colorful insulated water bottle carrier to keep her water cool and convenient. How refreshing!

It was a quick and easy project to make from scraps, and I had fun making it too!

Thanks for visiting us! We hope that you’ve enjoyed today’s sunny projects. Your comments make our day, so please let us know what you think! Visit the rest of today’s participating blogs, all in the links below.

Happy quilting,

Sharon & Susan

  1. All of your projects are lovely, and I am especially drawn to the colourful water bottle carrier. Thanks for that instruction set.


  2. You always share the cutest things. I love the Sunshine Sampler. What a great idea to have an insulated water bottle carrier!


  3. Your slideshows are always a treat to watch. The sunny colors and the design on the quilt are totally perfect for this hop…love it! The water bottle carrier is a quilter’s dream for staying hydrated on walks. You both rocked the theme on this one!


  4. I LOVE that the days are so much longer and hate that they shorten up way too soon. I think the water botte carrier is perfect and I thought all the bright colors were the best.


  5. You always have such amazing projects; past and present. The insulated water bottle is a great idea and thank you for the instructions!


  6. Great projects and I love the quilt. I am not a fan of walking outside when it is really hot, and lately it is even too hot early in the morning, but the water bottle carrier is awesome.


  7. love your sampler, so bright and cheery. I had a friend go to the hospital just last week suffering from dehydration I might whip him out one of your very thoughtful bottle carriers
