This quilt used a layer cake from Moda Citrus: we used the left over fabric and made a fun border!
The quilt was quilted in a star pattern by Judy Kracker using fluorescent thread!

To make this quilt we used yardage from Moda Martinque

The center block is one my favorites because this block was easy and fun!

We wanted to try to make this block in a larger size to fit on a table. The fabric collections we used was Moda Sunkissed. We started with 8" squares then recut to 7 1/2 and ended up with a table cloth 52" square. Isn't it lovely!
