First things first…I want to finish this quilt top and quilt it as soon as I can, to hang above the couch in the living room. I was flipping through patterns, trying to find something fairly simple to on that spot until I have an applique quilt finished. Above the couch is a great place for wall hangings, the couch is along the left wall as you come into the room, so the quilt isn’t immediately obvious as other pictures and things attract your attention, but as you sit down the extra colour or design in the quilt catches you eye. This Sunshine and Shadow pattern is in a book called The Simple Joys of Quilting by Joan Hanson and Mary Hickey, it is just the right size and presented in just the right colours so there was no fiddling with the pattern or colour scheme.
And, here is a picture of the Remembrance in blue and white, pattern by Kim Diehl in her book Simple Seasons.
