You Are My Sunshine

When my Alex was a baby I would sing to him ‘You Are My Sunshine.’  After all how could your first son not be a ray of sunshine in your life?  So naturally, when this design came to me while playing with Julie’snew line, Baby Jane, by Moda, I knew I had to name it Sunshine.

I had fun playing with the quilting.  It is getting to be less of a chore.  Though I must admit I still have a lot of room for improvement.  I quilting suns around the boarder.

And added radiating rays out from each sunshine.

The pattern is available on my website.

    Your comment brings back a memory for me. My dad used to sing "That Little Girl of Mine". The block design does look like the sun.

    Gorgeous pattern and fabric! I used to sing that song to my daughter too when she was a baby. I have fond memories of being in her dimly lit room, rocking in the chair, singing this song so she settled after a nighttime feed. That and Away in a Manger. They worked ๐Ÿ™‚

    The quilt is beautiful. I love how you named it after your memory. It made me think about what I used to sing.

    This is the perfect quilt for a child. I think we all call our children our sunshineโ€™s so this theme works. Thank you for making the pattern available.
