Summersaulting Thursday

I recently won a giveaway at Fat Quarterly so I thought I'd cheer up our glowering thunderstormy skies with a little peek!

It’s a fab stack of Erin McMorris’ new Summersault line for Free Spirit in the ‘Lake’ colourway.  I somehow missed out on Park Slope & Wildwood, so it’s really great to get my hands on these beauties.  I’ve used Erin’s Irving Street Flannels before and they were wonderful to work with.

There’s a lovely interview with Erin here.   I can’t find anywhere in the UK that stocks Summersault , but you can see it in loads more detail at The Fat Quarter Shop or Sew Mama Sew.  If you know better, please let me know in a comment!

The colours are rich and bright without being too garish, the fabric is warm and soft and I can’t wait to get quilting with it.  More precisely, this is going to be a quilt for my god-daughter’s birthday at the end of August .

I’ve got so many blocks I want to make at the moment, I can’t quite decide on a final pattern!  I’m thinking wonky stars on white or a rectangle zig zag. 

It needs to be simple or hypnotically repetitive to assemble, and sophisticated and striking to look at/touch.  After my Harlot’s Web I need a break from scrappy & strippy for a while!

Any ideas?  I’d really appreciate some suggestions …  do leave a comment with a link to something you love right now or a description … or summat like that.
