I love sunrises. I’m not a morning person (yet) at all and very rarely see the real thing, so I love finding things that remind me of sunrises. I especially love the sun rising behind hills and mountains. It is the inspiration for the color palette of my entire home. And it is why I don’t stick to a specific green, yellow, or blue hue. Nature doesn’t, so why should I?
I decided to make a quilted sunrise with some leftover fabric scraps. I love how my girls hang out with me while I sew and craft. I was sitting on the bed with my other girl cutting out way more squares than I actually used. All the girls are working on making outfits for their stuffed animals. It is adorable.
After I cut all the squares, I played around with arranging them. Then I just sewed it all together, ironed it, and put it in the frame. It was actually pretty easy.
I put it up in my foyer, because that spot had been blank for the almost three years that I’ve lived here.
I’m happy to have that spot filled with something that makes me smile every time I see it. Blues, greens, and yellows. Sunrises. Sewing. Happy happy things.
