Granny Squares

Michelle, from California, made this very pretty Granny Squares quilt for her daughter. 
She plans on entering it in the fair in August.
Here are a few photos of some of my favorite color combinations:
Michelle used some reds, pinks, mustard yellows, and green Civil War prints.
I quilted an orange peel design on the pieced Granny Square blocks.
 (free-hand orange peels...uh, huh)
I swirled the background areas.
I like how the orange peel design leaves a secondary circle design.
 Oh - the pink border!
I quilted a pretty feather in that pink border.
The backing.....I like how the pink orange peels just barely show up.
I love this quilt!
Thank you, Michelle - I loved every single minute of quilting this one!
I believe it deserves a big blue ribbon!!!
Are any of you working on a county/state fair quilt to enter this fall?


  1. I always enjoy seeing the quilts your customers make Kathy. So much variety in pattern and color and in how you quilt them. Just lovely!

    1. Thanks! I love my customers and their quilts.

  2. I've just been scrolling through your blog for inspiration. (I'm a new longarm quilter.) I love what you've done on this quilt!

    1. Thank you! You'll love the longarm world! Ask questions if you need to and just enjoy the journey!

  3. It is beautiful. I love the border feathers!!
