I belong to a Yahoo Small Quilt group, and this is June's small quilt of the month.
The pattern is Scrap Squares from "The Civil War Sewing Circle" by Kathleen Tracy.
It was such a fun quilt to make. 32 different fabrics, plus "the shirting".
I decided to quilt it in an "X" pattern using the walking foot on the machine to keep it simple. I used a variegated Valdani thread - a 35WT hand quilting thread that I had left over from another project, because I wanted the stitching to really show, using a #90 top stitching needle. I used cotton batting, and after washing it, dried it in the dryer so that it would shrink and have an older look.
After drying the quilt is 19" x 15" (which is smaller than the pattern because I cut the shirting to the wrong size and just went with it - not too good at following patterns lately!).
Today I made this Hop To It block. Our quilting group just has one block left for this BOM.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!❤
