Board Shorts Quilt

I'm excited to share some photos of a quilt of mine that appears in Stitch magazine. You can find the pattern for Board Shorts in the summer issue. It's a very simple quilt pattern, quick to piece, and perfect for beginners.
This twin sized quilt (70" x 87.5") was inspired by the striped board shorts surfers wear.  The Boys of Summer section of the magazine has some nice beachy, masculine projects including mine. 
I love the summery color palette.  All Kona cottons, I found all the colors I needed at Marmalade fabrics.  Thanks again to Tammy for letting me come over and try out a zillion combinations.  I love how she labels the Kona color names. So handy!
The quilting was done by Tia Curtis in an all over design.
The quilt is perfect for a twin bed, dorm room, or picnic blanket.  It is available now in my etsy shop.

Great and bright, and definitely summery. I love blue and orange together, but I have rarely seen it done in a quilt until recently.

Simply stunning! Those colors are what make this so appealing. And that Tammy. She's a sweetie, and you're fortunate to have access to her and her shop.
