Soulshine in Brown + Teal Baby
I made a little baby version of Soulshine! It was actually for a neighbor. This is not a size that is in the pattern, but I’ll give you the directions for it below. I don’t get to make many small quilts and I was pretty pleased with how quickly it came together.

About this Soulshine
Like I mentioned above, this size which was 36″x48″ is not included in the pattern. BUT the pattern does include a chart for what you need in each block if you wanted to do your own thing. So it wasn’t hard at all for me to do just that!
I used colors that were requested for this one, but also tried to keep it as earth tone as possible (something I just really need in my quilts, lol). Most of the fabrics are from Meander + Make.
I quilted this Soulshine the exact same way I quilted the other one, except this time I gave the leaves/petals points at the end instead of curved ends. I like this version better.
Tomorrow, I have a video tutorial for the quilting on this one. Pop back in to view that!
