My lemonade quilt was my ode to this hot summer, we broke record highs in Knoxville for 3 or 4 days in a row! I do not do well in hot weather... I sometimes break out in hives. No fun. I'd much rather be cold and numb, riding the chairlift up at a ski resort than sweating by just stepping out my front door.
I won all of these fabrics at my first Knoxville Modern Quilt Guild meeting! And put this quilt together to donate to the Hurricane Sandy Drive.
I practiced several different FMQ techniques. And added kona cerise for binding. I love how it turned out! The dark gray and yellow remind me of blistering hot summer pavement.
