The Heart of Sunshine Cove

The jumbo center medallion quilt that reminds us there are always brighter times ahead.

"It never hurts to keep looking for sunshine." 

Eeyore said it best didn't he? It never hurts to keep looking for sunshine. This quote ran through my head throughout this entire year and it led the vision of Sunshine Cove so it was only natural for sunshine to have a big role in The Heart of Sunshine Cove.

This year has been difficult but when you remember there's always something to be grateful for; always something to look forward to; always sunshine when you look for it... well, it makes things a lot easier.

This gorgeous center medallion is my way of reminding you of that. From the beautiful flowering trees to the large sun beaming its blessings down, every bit of this quilt is to remind you there are brighter times ahead and you can start experiencing them right now if you just look for them.

The Heart of Sunshine Cove is so much more than fabric and thread. It's a reminder that we all need more uplifting moments in our lives. We need to uplift others and accept uplifting ourselves. It's about the pursuit of joy (even when that means creating it ourselves), finding the beauty in every day, and bringing more light in this world even when things get chaotic.

The Sunshine Cove quilt was created with the thought of a global village. As the world is telling us to be more independent, to only look out for ourselves, and to focus on me-me-me, it's an invitation back to simpler times. It's a place where people live in harmony with each other and enjoy the bounty of nature.

That's why you see so much nature in The Heart of Sunshine Cove. From the beautiful trees and luscious green grass in the center to the oversized flowers blooming on the border... it's a reminder to look for beauty all around you. 

It paints a scene of a simpler life where things centered around the town square, the church, or one's education and development. I want more of that, don't you?

The Heart of Sunshine Cove is a jumbo square medallion quilt that can be added into the Sunshine Cove quilt to create a gorgeous work of art OR it can be created as a separate quilt altogether. This beautiful design is created entirely in the hoop using an embroidery machine.

You get two different building designs for the center plus three border options so you can create a quilt that truly represents you and what matters most.

When you choose to say yes to yourself and the magic of creating this beautiful project, you're going to embark on a life-changing adventure. 

Adventure? Really? I'm just making a quilt... Yes, I know you're making a quilt. But you're never only JUST making a quilt. 

You're creating a work of art. Sometimes, a gift that's going to touch someone's soul in a way you can't even imagine. Other times, a beautiful piece that's going to remind you hey, I did that and I learned so much!

You're saying yes to doing something you love. Something that nourishes your soul, and that's more important than ever before. 

You're going to learn so much about the capabilities and magic of your machine along the way. When you complete a project with me, from that point forward, you will be able to pick up any other design and put it together with amazing results.

You may be feeling nervous... what if I can't do this? It looks incredible but a bit involved. 

It is a bit involved, that's true. But I've learned when people really set their heart and mind to something, they can accomplish amazing things. You're not in this alone - you're surrounded with support from our online quilting community, my team, and me. 

If this quilt is calling out to you, get your copy of this gorgeous design and join us on this magical adventure.
