Anita took the Sunny Skies Quilt pattern and made it her own! She brought this super cute scrappy quilt to Angela Huffman for some simple meander quilting.

Take a look at Anita’s super cute quilt! This looks a lot like Missouri Star Quilt Co.’s Sunny Skies quilt, but Anita mixed it up a little. Instead of squares in the background arranged like a checkerboard, she made big squares in a square on point expanding out to the border. Doesn’t it create a…
