Blue Skies and Lemonade

My favorite things or a few things are blue sky and lemonade.  Yum.. So I decided to make a quilt with that theme.  Actually my starting point was a photo from Design Seeds.  Lemons in a sky blue colander is a wonderful stepping off point don't you think?

 The block is from Tickle and Hide blog and is simple effective. It would also make a great scrappy or monotone colored quilt too. So after getting everyone's blocks back and pressed, I put them on the design wall, played with turning them this way and that to find the perfect composition.

From there it was off to the long armers for a spell to get the perfect treatment. A white thread in a double leaf on a vine pattern.  You can see it better in the photo below.
