    Little Squares Quilt

    Hi everyone,
    I haven't posted in a while, thanks to teaching English full time again. It's amazing how much time grading essays takes. I did manage to get one small quilt made since Christmas. It was fun and easy and definitely one I'll make again. I like the clean modern lines and the easy going. Thanks for looking.

    That is an awesome quilt. You done good girl. Love the quilting you done in the white blocks with all the hearts. Keep up the good work. Just think what you'll be able to do when school is out.

    I love the clean looks, it seems very difficult to find a pattern that is not cluttered but relaxing and as you say with clean lines. I love the quilting you have done and the fabrics as well.

    This is a really cute pattern and a cheerful quilt too.

    It just might lend itself to the QAYG finish! I am one who needs less weight in my hands and less maneuvering with poor wrists. The way I started quilting was in short spurts while I taught school. The QAYG was what worked for me because it was portable. Later I have tried to tackle the big ones and have not done well because of my hands and wrists.
    GramMER to eighteen, plus two great-granddaughters and four adopted greats soon we hope!

    You did well; it is a lovely quilt. I appreciate how difficult it is to make time especially when working. I too haven't made many quilts due to time constraints but manage my withdrawal symptoms by drooling over pictures of other quilters lovely projects! Thank you for sharing.

    I call the pattern little squares. I've been working on an EQ7 design for it but that also takes time! It was really easy and fun. I forgot to say that I got the 2 1/2 inch squares at QuiltCon in February. Some of the vendors were giving them away and both hubby and I picked up a packet. By the time we made the whole round of vendors, I had almost enough for a small quilt--just added a few solids from my stash.

    Thanks for all the sweet comments. It's nice to get other quilters' opinions. Does anyone know what happened to my earlier started posts? I've posted some of my quilts before but there is not one post still around. What gives?
