TGIFF - Square in Square Class Sample

My LQS has asked me to teach another beginner modern quilt class.  I thought a square in square quilt would a good choice to show traditional quilters how traditional fabrics can be used in a modern way...baby steps.

I used Kona solids for the centres and prints for the outside.


The quilting is organic wavy lines.


These photos were taken when we had snow, but it's all gone now.  Yeah!!


There's been no sewing for me this past week -- it's still busy at work.  But I did some prep work tonight, so I can get right to sewing in the morning.  Here's to a good night's sleep so I am well rested to spend all day Saturday in my sewing room.

  13. I think it would be cool to use this pattern as a jumping off point for a modern quilt. Take the same people and have them make improv square in square blocks set in an asymmetrical layout with lots of negative space and wow! A really modern quilt. Congrats on your finish.
