One of my favorite things is giving quilts! My goal in life is to make a quilt for everyone in my family. I have a big family and it keeps growing with marriages and babies! I couldn’t be happier, more quilts to make and give away! Even though Chris is not “technically” a family member, he is definitely family and has won our hearts, including our daughter’s. This is one of my all time favorite quilts to make and give away. It’s a cozy quilt that’s easy care, machine wash and dry. Yes, I have another Stacked Squares quilt started! I’ll keep making them until the fabric runs out!
Thanks for looking! If you’re traveling today – be safe! Linda
Here’s the after washing and drying picture of my homespun Stacked Squares quilt. Yes, I have made several of these quilts. I believe this is the 12th one! Every time I start one of these for myself, I end up giving it away! So, I’ll be starting another one for me. 13 is a lucky number in our house, so I’ll keep that one for me! Maybe!!
Here’s a view before washing and drying. I love how the homespun shrinks up and gets all cuddly and wrinkly. I’m using Quilter’s Dream 100% cotton select batting.
I’m linking up to Such a Sew and Sew: A Stitch in Time… for another March finish. My first finish was a little potholder.
Thanks for looking and just keep stitchin’ !
When my nephew got married this summer, what was his present? A “Stacked Squares” quilt! Here’s how I “wrap” my quilts for gift giving. You might notice one square has their name and wedding date stitched on it, too! The second Stacked Squares went to college with my daughter and I forgot to get a picture, thus here’s a pic of me and my daughter posing in her dorm room! For Brett’s wedding quilt and Rachel’s dorm quilt, the border is a wavy crosshatch, otherwise, the details are the same as my previous post.
