The Odd Square Quilt


Odd Squares
This is just a simple little bub quilt for a friend’s bub (born last week - welcome Astar Cate!) - it’s made up of a single pack of charm squares of ‘Hoopla’ by Moda.

To try and break away from the standard square blocks I tried to make it a little more exciting by chopping of random sized corners of each coloured block.

A few close ups of the quilting

I just love all these bright colours.

For the quilting I machine quilted ¼ inch from each seam and also diagonally across the colours blocks. I love this quilt because it’s cute, bright and perfect for a little bub lie on the floor and discover all those lovely bright colours and prints!

For the binding I used a bright green and white spot (all my binding seems to be spots at the moment - but I love them as they really reflect the modern quilting style).

The backing for this quilt is just made up of a range of yellows I already had in my stash. It shows up the quilting pattern nicely.

Can you see the Ohio quilt pattern?

Finished Dimensions: 90cm x 90cm (36" x 36")
