The Guild met last Friday night. David Taylor was our speaker. His quilts are absolutely awesome. It was a wonderful night that was enjoyed by all.
I’ve had two quilts at the long arm quilter. I quilt my smaller ones, but send the larger ones out. I knew that I had sent quilts that I made last summer, but I couldn’t remember what they were.
I’ve been looking at four block quilts on Pinterest, as I have a drawer of cut squares. They are cut 2 1/2″, 5″ and other sizes. There are a lot of 2 1/2″ squares and I’ve been looking for a pattern for them. There was one quilt that I thought would be perfect to use the squares.
When I received the quilted quilt last week, I was surprised to see that I had already made that one in 5″ squares. Last summer, I took a box of scraps to Maine and tried to use them up. Now, I’m wondering what the other quilt at the long arm quilter looks like.
This is such a pretty quilt. It’s so easy to make. The white strips are 1/2 the size of the squares. It could be made with any size square with that formula.
The quilting made the quilt. It is quilted in a pale blue. ‘The back is beautiful.
I may still make the quilt with the smaller squares. It could be made with beginners and enders. It would be a good way to use up that drawer of fabric.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
