Squared³ - Project Quilting - Season 4 - Week 1

Squared³ - Project Quilting - Season 4 - Week 1

This is my Entry for the 1st Project Quilting Challenge, Season 4, called “A square in a a square” and I called this project “Squared³”

I kept it simple due to a current busy schedule and created a set of potholders with square blocks and also using some gingham fabric. These potholders were created with fabrics from my stash and made in Heide, Germany and it’s the first time I made potholders that had a square shape, I usually make fruit shapes :)

They measure 22,5 x 22,5 (9” x 9”) square, pun intended ;)

"Just a Twist"

This is my square in a square entry for Project Quilting .... this is quite a departure from my usual form of quilting and it was fun to take on a project this week that I can now use. I used the pottery tumblers in the photo when choosing the colour palette and am delighted with the modern finish to the wonky blocks that I made. This table runner will reside in my home in British Columbia, Canada.

Square within a square

My first 2013 Project Quilting challenge, "Square within a square". It's 15" by 15", made with batiks from my stash, and free motion quilted by me, Becky, from Pendleton, Oregon. It's based on a sign I saw a few years ago that I knew I someday wanted to make into a quilt. Now it is!! Blogged about here: ished.html


I’ll post more ‘Closer Looks’ soon!  Goodnight everyone!
