Embrace the sun quilt

The may is nearly over and it's still pretty hard to find the sun in germany.

It's always raining and the temerature is pretty low.
Tuesday was the only nice day this week so I spent most of the days outside.

I went jogging and me and mr. artistic took our bikes for a little ride.

In the late afternoon we met with friends and had a little barbecue.

But I'm full of hope that the sun might come back again this summer so I finished my "Embrace the sun" summer quilt.

I used only stuff I had on hand. I mixed some vintage fabrics with a few fabric left overs from other projects.

For the backing I used an old curtain which was gifted to me by a friend of my dad.
The green is perfect to put the quilt on the grass because you won't see any spots.

The binding is made by the last pieces of vintage fabrics which I had left over and some solids.

Now I'm hoping the sun comes back pretty soon that I can use the quilt.
