Yesterday I shared my entry into the Modern Quilt Category, and today I’m sharing my entry into the Small Quilt Category.  This one I’m calling Square Berries.  I designed these two blocks for the recent Cloud9 block design blog hop, and put my blocks together to make a small quilt.  I originally posted about the blocks and the quilt here and here – you can get tutorials for making the blocks in these posts.  Both are 12″ blocks, so this quilt is 24″x24″ (or 96″ around).

I enjoyed designing the blocks and doing the tutorials.  I also had a good time doing the quilting.  I have been practicing machine quilting these swirls, and I am really happy with how they turned out.  I used Aurifil 4663 (Baby Blue Eyes – a variagated blue and white) on the front of the quilt and Aurifil 2311 (Muslin) on the back.

I hope you enjoy my entries – I enjoyed making them!

    1. Thanks Stephanie! As I told Abigail I feel kind of weird about writing another post about it so soon after the hop, but I wanted to enter, so there you go. Thanks so much for the compliment, and for stopping by.

    1. Thanks Leanne! I worked so hard on those darn swirls! I was drawing them out on paper pretty much all summer trying to get it down, and quilting little practice sandwiches. I finally just decided to give it a go on a quilt, and I’m so happy with how it turned out! Thanks for stopping by.
