I love block in block (or square in square) quilts. It’s somewhat theraputic sitting in front of the TV watching back to back episodes of “House Hunters” while making the blocks. I’m excited about the the thin sashing strips because they add another layer of dimension, give the eyes a resting spot between fabric changes and look professionally finished like a well-tailored suit.
I’ve got a stash of Christmas fabric I’ve been saving. This technique would be perfect for this quilt block.

Easy Quilting Tutorial
I just love using non-directional dots in quilts, so I was happy to see the latest quilting tutorial video from Jenny at the Missouri Star Quilting Company. See how that black dotted border frames this beautiful quilt? The cream background allows the eyes to rest, while the green makes it pop. It’s slightly tricky to layout, but it’s still an easy lap quilt if you strip piece the 4-patch or 16-patch blocks. I’m all for quick assembly.
The Sunny Skies quilt pattern was featured in the Fons & Porter’s Quilting Quickly Spring 2013 issue. That’s it at the top of this page. You can also download it right now, if you’re the impatient type, like me. Natalie did a good job of replicating it.
Here’s the video for Natalie’s version of the Sunny Skies lap quilt.
