Rectangle Squared Quilt Top

I’ve been in a sewing mood lately, as in, all I want to do is be home and SEW. I dream of quilts all day long! I am in La-La Land! This week I have been working on the Rectangle Squared Quilt. The pattern is free over at Film in the Fridge. She made her quilt a bit smaller than this one, I added another row of blocks to it. You know me, I don’t like making small quilts.

I played with the layout of it for awhile…

Made a big mess on my kitchen table (yes, I sew on my kitchen table)

And last night added the final border to it, using that pretty fabric called Love by Amy Butler.

This is another quilt top that I need to get quilted up now :D Woohoo!

Great job, Heather! I love the clean graphic feel and the cheery ( but not sugary sweet ) colors. I would love to see it in person. Can you bring it for show and tell at the PMQG Jan. meeting? Pleeeeeease.

I was looking for a quilt to make for a baby boy and I have all the blue fabrics you could want. This would be just the thing! Thanks for the idea

Very pretty..love the colors! I made a mess in my dining room too! I have a sewing room but always end up on the dining table for the room. Only a quilter understands the need for elbow room. =)

This is very pretty. With different colors you could use black instead of white outline. I had to laugh about using the dining room because my dining room is a bit messy too. My sewing room isn't enough so I too in up at the dining table. ;)
