Club Tropicana

I've finished my Swatch quilt and I've called it Club Tropicana. 

A while ago I started naming my quilts after my favourite songs from the 1980's and I loved Club Tropicana by Wham.  Here's link to the video in case you need a reminder.  This quilt does have some palm trees it in and the bright yellows remind me of pineapples, so Club Tropicana seemed appropriate. 

This was a quick and easy quilt to make and it will be perfect for my older son.  I won't have to worry about it living on the floor!

I'm proud to say that I made this one from my stash.  I got it quilted at Busy Bee Quilt Shop in Wellington with a modern design.

It's quite a big quilt, and I didn't want to have to piece a backing, so I chose this wonderful Kaffe wide back and I love it.  My son can use it either side up now.  

Finished size 60" x 72"

I cut my blocks at 5.5" x 9.5"

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

Lovely, cheerful quilt. That backing fabric is gorgeous and Club Tropicana is a very fitting name.

The quilt is so bright and happy but perfect for a young adult. It's fun to make simple designs, they sew up fast! Happy stitching!
