Blue Squares

Throw size appx. 38" x 54"

I thought I'd share with you a cute little quilt I made and finished the other day.  I took me just a few days to get all the pieces cut and sewn together.  It took me a bit longer to quilt it because I outlined all the large squares inside and outside of the seam.  I did the echo quilting and tied off each square.

Around the little "dancing" squares I just followed around the outside and stitched in the ditch.  On the border I straight line stitched four lines on each side and they intersected in the corners.

My little one had claimed this quilt as his.  I'm thinking he needs a quilt for his bed now.  Hmm...

I used (an older) but absolute favorite line of fabric- "Spa" by Deb Strain for Moda.  Love it!!!  My favorite color combination is blue and yellow (add white and grey and you have a winner).  This fits the bill perfectly.
Over the front railing on the porch 

I used a pattern I bought at my LQS.  The pattern is called "Square Dance" by Gigi's Thimble.  I love how easily this went together.  This should have been my beginner quilt.  Oh well, I shoot for the stars instead of the moon. ;)

Over the bench I refinished (with my little one's baseball glove and my hubby's cleaning brush). Just think of the extras as added character. :)
Enjoy your day!

Quilting Pics

so pretty

Getting ready to quilt hearts
I quilted hearts in free motion quilting.

another pretty shot of quilting

In the final stages before squaring it up and adding binding.  But first we had to test it out with a "picnic" for snack time.
Forget fancy binding clips, my clothes pins work great.

BOM complete!!

I have finally finished my Craftsy BOM quilt.  Actually, I finished it about a month ago, but have enjoyed snuggling with it and using it during our cold weather.  I just have been lazy slow in getting it posted!

So, here it is.  It's not quite a twin size quilt.  It's about the width of a twin, but not quite the length.  Still more than perfect to snuggle under. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
