Great, you are back! Now onto Pop Squares. If you remember a few posts ago, I gave you a little sneak peek. Really little... Well here is the full monty, so to speak.
This quilt I designed, pieced, and quilted. I used fabrics from Blank Quilting which can be found here.
It is a beginner quilt, with simple shapes. Squares, rectangles and sashing to form a pleasing design.
A mottled red backing and binding to finish it off.
The quilting design I used was an edge to edge design with a daisy motif. I used Superior Threads Rainbows to enhance the design.
Here is the quilt in its entirety. So you say, what is so special about this quilt... well it is the first quilt that I have published!!
Yup, you can find this quilt in Quick Quilts Fall 2010 Issue #117. Here is the spread. Wait... a closer look for you...
