Sunday Morning in Sober Tones

Frequent Covered in Love contributor Amanda from Louisiana sent along a jelly roll of Moda "Remembrance" a month or so ago.  During my sew day a while back I started turning these into blocks for the titular "Sunday Morning" quilt from Amanda Jean and Cheryl Arkison's Sunday Morning Quilts. Now I'm finishing them into a top. It's kind of interesting to see the modern design is such not-modern fabrics.

The top was a tad small without borders; fortunately I found the perfect matching plaid fabric in my stash.  Pretty sure that plaid was a donated fabric, too, but I can't remember who from. I'm thinking I'll put a narrow black border on between the top and the plaid to break it up a bit before I sew it together.  Once this one gets quilted up it will be a donation top for Covered in Love

The July block drive is up for those who want to contribute and a few people have already sent their blocks in (thanks Christy, Nancy, and Kathy!)  This time we're making whatever star block takes your fancy in patriotic red, white, and blue.

Linking to Judy's Design Wall Monday.


  1. I just finished a rail fence top so your DWM thumbnail photo caught my eye. I think a skinny black "interrupter" will work really well. I like the way the plaid strips aren't all cut on the same part of the pattern, too.

  2. A black inner border sounds perfect for that quilt. What a great use of scrappy strips this pattern would be!
