Squares

Squares

Do you remember these quilts I made in the Baby Pinwheels quilt post in June? I was left with a lot of 2.5" squares of 30s reproductions. What to do, what to do? I loved the look of the white with these fabrics so I combined some solid white and these 2.5" squares and this is the result.

This is another of the donation quilts that I sent to that long arm quilter again with disastrous results. I should have quilted it myself.

Real exciting post title, huh?

  3. It is satisfying to make something from true scraps.

    I like the simplicity of this quilt, but the colors and fabrics are what make it lovely.

  4. Paula, I guess it's just me but I think this particular quilt took the disastrous quilting rather well. It's a beautiful quilt and the pattern takes that rhythm I think. You know, maybe she needed to be listening to some Jackson Browne instead of the News.

  6. It's a beauty and looks so darned loved and worn already!
    I've just spent too much time going back and forth through your blog post that I am apparently missing! It has been a bit since I've visited and enjoyed you today.

  10. I like this quilt. Sorry that you were not pleased with the quilting. It's such a let down when that happens, but honestly, this is still a sweet quilt.

  11. It looks pretty darned good from here . . . . but I must say that I truly appreciate that you put thought and care into donation quilts. So many times I hear of a new long-armer wanting donation quilts to practice on. What the heck? While we might not be creating hand-pieced heirlooms to donate, we should still try to send well made quilts filled with love *stepping off my soapbox now*

  12. It's a cute quilt, I'm sorry the quilter didn't do an adequate job.

  13. I think the quilt police has influenced me and made me think that squares were too simple and boring, that I'm too "advanced" for such simple stuff, but the more I look at these types of quilts, the more I disagree. This is a beautiful quilt - things don't have to be complicated to be pretty and artistic. Yours is gorgeous.

  14. I usually avoid repeating geometric quilting, it's so hard to make it look perfect. But I love those squares with the white. ahhh It's a scrappy quilt--the best kind.

  15. I love this quilt! The simplicity of it, and you did a great job placing the colors! Bad long arm job?
    I can't tell, it looks great from here!
