This wall hanging is 21 inches square. It is made from vintage blocks originally cut and collected by my grandmother. The binding is from a piece of vintage yardage collected by my great aunt. I stuck with the simple relatively modern design to highlight these unique fabrics. The square in a square pattern reminds me of looking into the infinity mirror seeing the past and future reflected together. The traditional feather quilting is a nod to the skill of those quilters under whose quilt frame I used to play.
I quilt near St Louis Missouri.
I’m Kathy and I am a quilter in Chandler Arizona. My son loves penguins and I have had these batik squares for years and didn’t know what to do with them. When this challenge was posted I knew it was time to do something with them. This is 24in square and the layout was suggested by my daughter when I couldn’t figure out what to do with 9 on point squares. These Project Quilting challenges always come with an extra challenge for me — I don’t have time to go to the store so I have to make something with what I have at home and I don’t have a large stash. I’m happy I finally made use of these penguins.
Quilter: Quilts by Lisa
Valentine’s Day table runner (14″ x 32″) made in Ashland, Kentucky for Project Quilting Season 4 Challenge 1, A Square in a Square.
The block I used for this project is kind of like a traditional square in a square but with another square superimposed on top of it. It is a variation of something I saw on the Electric Quilt website. I paper pieced my blocks. The heart appliques (with turned edges, stitched down by machine) were added after the piece was quilted. The fabrics are from Henry Glass, “Sending My Love”.
This mini quilt is 8 1/2″ by 10 1/2″. I found a charm pack in my stash that I just love!
I had thought about doing off-center squares, but there wasn’t quite enough fabric in a charm square to do what I had thought.
Oh – and I’m in the middle of nowhere, North Dakota!
Quilter: Janie Kemp
I’m Janie and I quilt in College Station, TX. The idea for this centerpiece mat came from the logic puzzle “How Many Squares?” The fabrics are great for Valentine’s Day, but can also be used for Christmas (some European countries use hearts at Christmas), or for any red-lover on any day. The centerpiece mat is 16″ square.
Hip to be Square – Project Quilting, Seas 4, Ch. 1
I am Sharon from Michigan. I’m glad to return this year! This is my second season. I’m a fairly new quilter. Looking forward to stretching myself with each challenge!
For these hot pads, I fussy cut the center flowers, offset them within more squares, and bound with same center fabric. I quilted each center flower with an offset square within the block and then did each one differently. My fav is with the squares within squares (on the left). The other one I tried different things within each pieced section. I used insulbright and one layer of warm and natural in each pad.
