Yes! Vinnie and I are a team! We've gotten much more familiar with one another and the pile of finished quilt tops is quickly becoming smaller and smaller!
I mentioned in a previous post that this is Lil's Simpler Tymes pattern by Jeanne Horton of the Country Sampler using her Simpler Tymes fabric. Once again I am photo-challenged in our house. The lighting isn't optimal so I always try to include enough shots of my quilts in different lights and settings. Here we are in the living room.
I tried one on the dining room table - not much better. When Mr. Squash first saw the finished flimsy he remarked that it looked like a cup of hot chocolate, so I think that's what I'll call it - Hot Chocolate!
I used Quilter's Dream Wool batting for the first time and I'm sold! The high loft was a little scary at first but it squished right up with the quilting and I had no trouble with tension whatsoever! I also love how it really shows the quilting as opposed to something much lighter like Warm & Natural!
Here it is on my design wall - this photo gives you a little better feel for the blocks - double square in a square. I sure wish I had gotten Monique's Square in a Square ruler when I was making this! Nest one for sure!
Again on the dining room table -- the back is pieced together with leftover fabric from the front. I can't believe how much you can cut from fat eighths! I still have lots of fabric left over! I quilted Hot Chocolate using a fun pantograph called Frisky Feathers by Lorien Quilting! I'm sure this pattern will be used over and over!
Would you believe I've even finished another quilt? I can't show it to you just yet, but will very soon!
