Most people think of winter as the season for snuggling up under quilts, but I had fun making this list of summer quilt patterns that I think are just as fun! I use quilts during summer when we are out with a picnic but I think they’d be nice at the beach too, or simply out on a porch swing. I’d love to know what makes you think of summer – I always add new patterns to my round-ups if they catch my eye!
