Quilt summer away: patterns to celebrate the season

From Flower Show QuiltsSummer is officially in full swing—do you have stitching planned for the sunshiny days ahead? There are lots of fun reasons to pick up needle and thread during the warmest season. (In fact, one great reason is to get an occasional reprieve from the warmest season!)

When it comes to choosing a quilt, summer themes abound, from play at the beach to tranquility in the garden. Today’s pattern roundup speaks to all the best that summer brings each year. Get inspired to greet the season by creating your own homage to the annual heat wave—just a little satisfying stitching in between picnics, BBQs, garden strolls, and beachtime fun, of course!
