A Finished quilt

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.

IMG_1992When 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.

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.
