Fun, fast, eazy times 2

I found a new "go to" pattern for using my obessive collection of fat quarters. 
It is by Villa Rosa, the "Cloud 9" quilt. 
I had a FQ bundle of Foxfield by Tula Pink, and grabbed some yardage fron my stash of "whites that aren't really white" (thats what I call them). I pieced the first one while at the beach. Once I had it done, I knew I would make another!

Here they are together:

One is my 2014 Stokes County Humane Society raffle quilt, the other is being raffled in Virginia by the Friends of Hanover Dog Parks.

I love how bright and colorful they are! I also love how fast they go together!

The faster I get them pieced, the quicker I get to quilt them!
