Sunshowers, May 2015

Page Content: 

The colorway was inspired by a photo in the Quilt Design a Day group last year. After playing with the colors, they reminded me a lot of the rainy days here at home. Every so often a sunbeam breaks through the clouds, so its raining and sunny at the same time. I have always called them sunshowers, thus the name of the quilt.

By day, Stacey is an unassuming X-Ray Technologist in hot pink scrubs living in beautiful British Columbia with her husband, son, and neurotic cat. At night (and naptime) she transforms into an experienced quilter, pattern writer and designer, whose superpowers are directly related to the amount of thread ends on the floor (well, that's what she tells herself)! A third generation quilter, Stacey caught the sewing bug early in her life (apparently it's hereditary) and earned a Diploma of Fashion Production in 2005. Her work has appeared in numerous quilt shows and trunk shows across North America, and her patterns can be found on the websites of numerous fabric manufacturers as free downloads. See more of her work on her blog, staceyinstitches.wordpress.com.
