"Simply Squarific"

Here is the quilt I have been working on for several months, on and off.  It’s called “Simply Squarific,” and it’s for Loren and Margaret for Christmas, to perfectly fit their FULL-size bed.  Oops.   They just went out and bought a KING-size bed.  Somebody needs a kick in the rumpus when they get here!

See how nicely it fits on a FULL-size bed?

 

The quilt was made with mostly batik fabrics, plus some others tossed in to add color and fill.  Sure do hope they like it!!!

I asked Margaret late last summer what her favorite color was and she said BLUE.  Not knowing what shade of blue she prefers, I mixed them up.  Toss in some gold and browns to add that “manly” element and there you are!  It actually took me longer to quilt this than it did to sew the top together.  Very easy, straight piecing for a quick quilt.  It’s also the largest quilt I have done on my new Pfaff Grand Quilter.  I think I’m getting the hang of it!

  1. Oh dreamy, dreamy quilts! I am jealous of your artworks, and dreaming one day to make my own…Wishing you and yours a joyful holiday season. And, a very Merry Blessed Christmas, Caron~

  2. It will be very pretty fan folded at the bottom of the bed (on top of the bedspread and in full view) and they can pull it up on top of their sub-standard ugly store bought quilt on really cold nights.

  3. It’s a beautiful quilt! Looks big enough to cover them OK – just not much drop. They can either use it and get a bedspread of they can display it at the foot of the bed like Vicki suggested. If it were me I would prefer that it was actually used.
