Quilter: All Things Belle
I’m Jennifer Rodriguez and and I create in West Jordan, UT. “Church Squares” is an 8.5″ square art quilt. It was inspired by our beautiful church that is adorned with square stain glass windows. It was created with raw applique, Inktense pencils, Lumiere paint, and thread painting.
Quilter: Erin Z
My name is Erin and I am new to project quilting. My submission for this week is a crib quilt named “simple squares.” The quilt itself is a 32″X32″ square, and it was inspired by a larger antique tie quilt I found at the salvation army a few years ago, with the same pattern. The larger quilt is white with red binding and red ties, and the squares appear to be made of scraps. It is probably for a king-sized bed, and I got it for about $5.00 at the thrift store! Pieces of it are tattered and ripped away, but I think it’s beautiful. I would happily provide a picture if you would like to see it.
I am a mom and an ER nurse in central Pennsylvania.
Quilter: Terry T
When I decided to do this challenge, I committed to myself that I would not buy fabric to complete this challenge but instead use just what I had. I also want to use fabric from completed projects. So I went on my room and took the first box off my top shelf, not knowing what I would get. Here is my “Square Tweet” quilt. Pieces left over from a charm blanket I did. And one of the first pieces I have ever tried FMQ on. And I finished it at 3 this morning. Lol. Hope you enjoy and thanks for the challenge!!!
Bubblegum Square Dance
My entry for Project Quilting 4:1. I had these two yummy pink and brown stripe fabrics that I knew would make good square in a square pieces, so that’s where I started. Then I chose a few good coordinating solids and started the squares dancing! When they were all nicely composed, this is what became of the dance!

Set Your Sails
This is the front of my challenge piece. Working from my stash, I chose a piece of red yardage and used all of that, deciding that would limit the size of my quilt. I used a Square in a Square ruler to cut my blocks, super easy! For the whites and the blues I used various pieces from my stash to give the quilt a little more life. This is a very traditional style square in a square quilt. It measures 44 x 58 and was made by me in Coos Bay, OR.
