Squares on Squares

Good Morning, Quilters!

I have been using this vase quilt on my kitchen table with a vase full of flowers from the Farmers’ Market.  As summer fades away (sigh), it is time to bring out the Halloween-inspired and fall quilts.

I stitched Square Flowers in the green blocks using contrasting white thread (Aurifil 28wt).

In order to create depth on this little quilt, I added a vine motif (The Double Loop Vine) in the white blocks that appears to disappear under the green blocks.

To develop design unity, I repeated both motifs in the border and added Grid Pop (repeating the nine patch pieced design).

TO USE OR NOT TO USE?

As I packed this away I noticed a plate-sized grease stain!

The risk of using our quilts!

I prefer my quilts get used…so this is the price I pay…(though I am working on a Baltimore Album quilt that will have a velvet rope stand around it–IF I ever finish it!)
