Simple squares + simple sashing + simple borders + lavish quilting = one fabulous quilt. Forty two charm squares of Moda's SUMMER HOUSE fabric line are set into plain, vintage white sashing which is completely "doodle" quilting with matching thread. This line of fabric has an old fashioned look to it with very modern colors. Tea roses, toile, paisleys and stripes are done in hot pink, chartreuse, and peacock with touches of red, orange, robins egg blue and kiwi. Each square is quilted with a four petal flower with variegated thread of pink, blue, kiwi and cream, except for one square which is quilted with a heart - like a goodnight kiss. The narrow border is a tone on tone chartreuse tiny stars print quilted with curls. The wide border is luscious tea roses on a bright pink background and quilted with open heart scroll. Each kiwi corner is quilted with a dahlia. The same variegated thread is used. The binding is a stripe and the back of the quilt is a kiwi squiggle on cream. This quilt has a vintage feel but will bring a bright, contemporary look to any room.
