Squares Quilt Done



I've been doing binding for a week 1st the 4 patch and then this quilt. The squares were cut at 2 1/4 inches sewn to 1 3/4 inches. To make 12" finished blocks with 49 squares in each block. Having a blog has really helped to make me finish up these quilts.

Very nice both this and the 4 patch below. But of course I just love scrappy quilts. :-)

Good to know I have company in finishing UFO's. Yes, bindings do take just about forever, but so worth finishing so you can USE the quilt!! This is a lovely scrappy quilt - so many different fabrics, how fun!

Cheers!

What an amazing quilt ! You are going like the wind :-)

Gail said...

Another wonderful finish! Doesn't it feel great? I would have gone crazy laying out all those little squares into that organized pattern. What patience you must have.

You've done a great job on both of your quilts. They are both beautiful, yet both so different. I love scrappy quilts. Congratulations on finishing.

This is a beautiful scrappy quilt. I agree with you--having a blog does keep one focused on completion of projects. Somehow having to report progress in a "public" place does keep you focused!

I've just finished looking through your archives. What a prolific quilter you are! I like the quilts you choose to do, it seems that you like to challenge yourself-that's obvious from the goals you've set yourself.
Thank you for sharing.

Wow they both look really beautifull.

From a 4-patch to a 49-patch - whew. Nice quilts. I like them both. How nice to get these projects done. I agree that being a blogger/quilter, you think more about getting projects done so that you can post pictures. Blogging is a good incentive.

Great job on finishing those quilts! I love them both, especially the blue one.

ForestJane said...

I agree, blogging about quilts, and seeing everyone else's quilts is really a motivator for me too!

ooough, your squares quilt, is this also what is called a "Postage Stamp" quilt? I read a yahoo group called Stashbusters and they were talking about these over the weekend and I had never seen one before, but I think I just found one - yours! :c) So neat! Looks like you really busted a lot of your scraps. Did you cut them all into individual squares first? or use some strips? Great job on it - what an accomplishment!!!
