When a Quilt is Named Hot Summer


Martha Plante‘s use of some oranges and corals fires up the quilt she calls “Hot Summer”. It’s beautiful and full of the kind of drama you might find on a hot summer’s evening. There’s nothing shy about it.

Martha writes that the official name of the pattern is “Over and Under” from Kim Brackett’s book Scrap-Basket Sensations (Martingale & Co., 2011). She says that it is very easy and is a jelly-roll pattern. It measures 60″ square. Martha purchased the border fabric but used all the rest from her “inventory” (aka “stash”).

We’d like to say “Thank You” to Martha, not only for sharing her lovely quilt with our readers, but also for giving good information about the pattern name & source, about her materials, and how easy the quilt was to make. Everyone appreciates, too, how Martha engages with other quilters on our 24 Blocks Facebook page, answering questions and providing encouragement. That’s what makes a social media quilting community special. Thank you!
