Scrumptious Squares

I finally finished something on my 'Q1 Finish-along' list!

This quilt was made using a layer cake of Bonnie and Camille's 'Scrumptious' and some Kona snow.  

I adapted the pattern 'Square One' from Camille Roskelley's book 'Simplify' which is made using charm squares and Honey Bun strips.  I worked out how to get the proportions the same and used almost every piece of my layer cake.  There was some nervous cutting... but I do love the result!

It finished at approximately 64" by 76" so it's a very good size for one layer cake.  I did swap out some of the white squares for some extra yardage, but the other plain colours that were in the mix really make the blocks work.

I quilted this using a design called 'Cherish' from Christina Cameli's new book 'Step by Step Free Motion Quilting' which I really recommend!  I had originally planned to stencil on another design by now know that the free-motion way is so much more 'me'.  I even made the quilting a lot more dense than originally intended because I was having so much fun.

The quilt is bound in the multi-coloured print of orange flower discs - seen in the centre of the above two picture.  The backing is a co-ordinating Bella solid I had purchased for another project, and turned out to be almost the exact amount needed!

I am absolutely thrilled with this quilt and it must be one of my all-time favourites!

I'm linking up again to Crazy Mom Quilts for 'Finish It Up Friday'.

  3. Such a pretty quilt - I am so regretting not buying some of that fabric.

  4. Would you be willing to share how you changed the measurements to achieve the correct proportions? I have the book, and love your quilt!

  5. Absolutely gorgeous! Super work with a beautiful range of fabrics.

  6. Congrats on this beautiful finish. I just got that quilting book, and have been practicing drawing cherish. I can't wait to try it out.
