This Sunshine and Shadow quilt was inspired by my love of amish style quilting.  Of course, as quilters we love to put our own modern twist on it… I added the ‘bars’ (another amish influence) on the side to spice it up a bit.

I sewed the jelly roll strips together, cut the pieced rows into strips and then reorganized them into this pattern… similar to a trip around the world quilt.   I really loved working with the black, it makes the colors pop out nicely…
