I would like to thank CAROL for hosting this very fun hop. It has been interesting to see how bloggers have interpretted 'square' and I have certainly added to my 'to-do' list.
Please be sure to visit today's guests:
I have two go-to square patterns: the Postage Stamp and the Boxed Square. For this Hop I chose the Boxed Square because it is so easy to Math any size and can be very versatile in design. Use a Jelly ROll, your own strips, showcase a special fabric in the center, or use a color for a very pretty monochromatic quilt.
I had some small pieces of vintage Kitty fabric, but not enough to make a whole quilt. That is what is fun with this Boxed method - you can change out some of your 'squares'. Some Boxed squares, some Improve squares, and some full pieces squares.
The traditional setting is square/square, but you can change it up. This was to dark with all the black and brown, so I went with a real POP of color for sashing and cornerstones. This will be one of my Hands2Help quilts, so I want it fun for a child.
It's backed with a lime green and white check flannel - a snuggle quilt that I am sure a child is going to love napping with.
Then I remembered I had a quilt top made some time ago. Again to use up some vintage fabric (The Apple Farm) bits that were paired with some left over JR strips.
This HOP was a good excuse to finally get 'Caramel Apple' finished.
I even used up some vintage yardage for the back. Harvest Time is now off the shelf and perfect for this quilt.
Thank You for visiting,
