We have just arrived home from a few days here again. Testing out the new car, showing the in laws the sights. Received two delightful emails while away. Sheridan has received the little mini Dresden Plate I made for her and my friend N has received her 4th son's baby quilt, so I can share photos!
I've called this the Blue Squares Quilt. Which isn't hard to see why! It all came together quite quickly. I sewed these squares in one day at my local real life quilting group. The only guidelines I set myself was that I had to use fabric from my blue stash and the blocks had to be 8 inches, going for the square in the square look. Then it was just a matter of sashing them with white. I didn't take any measurements, but I think it was 3.5 inches between the blocks, so 3 inches finished?
Then I just quilted simply around the inner square and from edge to edge around each square.
Here is Milly with the quilt on her bed. I took this more as a reference for me as if I had made it 3 squares across, it would have sat perfectly on top of the mattress.
And the back. Using up more of the blue stash. I'm really happy with how this quilt turned out, I'd like to make more like this.
