The Thanksgiving holiday break is a great time for me to get in some quilting. The cooking, cleaning, feeding, cleaning all hits on Wednesday-Thursday, so while a seemingly large number of people are shopping, I am holed up in my sweatshop, happily stitching away! I was able to begin, and complete a wall quilt, all on Friday.
This is yet another awesome pattern by May Chappell "All Squared Up". It finished at 24" square.
I purchased the pattern as part of a kit from SewLux Fabrics. I swapped out the center square fabric, using instead a fussy-cut piece of "Winter's Lane", and instead of a solid background fabric, I used a low-volume print.
I had a blast quilting this. I used a bright polyester thread on my sweet Tiara & just let it fly!
Yep, that is some insane matchstick quilting in that border.
And some gratuitous back shots!
This will hang in our foyer as our "winter" wall quilt.
