Square Dance

During the summer in the Midwest, some days are raining and just blah. It is days like these, I spend in my sewing room. I found this pattern awhile back and while I didn’t have the fabric, I knew I wanted to make this quilt. I love this pattern of squares inside squares and the illusions the design would draw. I love the play of the different size squares and the lines. I dug through my stash to find just the right colors; I needed about a yard of each and found the perfect coordinating blues, greens and yellows. I thought the paisley pattern was the perfect added fabric.

The pattern, Off Centered Squares, by Fresh Lemon Quilts can be found here. It was a fun and easy Quilt and is probably a nice pattern for a beginner. The pattern was easy to follow and once I had all the pieces cut, I put on a good movie and started to sew. It was fun using my vision board along the way to get an idea of the final product.

Using the Design Board to determine each block layout.

I was able to complete the Quilt top in about a week of evening and then off to the Quilters. I can honestly say i was excited to get the quilt back from the Quilters. I especially love the quilting design with adds another layer of a linear design element to the already square pattern.

I know I say this about all my quilts, but I think this is one of my favorite quilts. Maybe they are like children, we love them all the same and each unique in their own way. I look forward to the cooler weather so I can wrap up this in cozy Quilt. Sew on with Sharon the moments and Happy Quilting …
