July Quilt Along: Sunshine

This is a part of a month to month quilt along. Join in when you have the time, or just hang around and enjoy the show. Learn more about these quilt alongs here.

With summer and warmer temperatures finally here, what could be brighter and happier than some sunshine. I've been thinking about this word for a while now and figure this would be a good place to start.
Do you want to play with me and create your own version of sunshine?
For mine I'm going to try out some paper piecing, and see if I can combine some bold bright colors to make a sort of rainbow-y sunshine.


Now to turn this:

into a ready-to-piece piece of art like this: (or something like this)

Is this right? I hope this works. :)
(I have NO idea what I'm doing.

I'd love for you to share your ideas and progress with us! I'll leave the linky open until the end of the month. Be sure to check back and see what others are up to.
Or you can share your pictures in the to blank walls flickr group:


 You don't have to be donating your wall hanging to join in, but if you are,
here are a few guidelines to remember:
  • Needs to be between 18 inches square and 40 inches square (it does not have to be square). 
  • No letter, numbers, military or religious symbols or flags. 
There are a few more guidelines that are important in the end. I will post about them later in the month, or you can find them all here.
