Another Boxy Quilt

Thursday, June 2, 2022

 I started this quilt on March 9th, 2022 and just finished
it yesterday, June 1st, 2022.  I somehow even talked my husband into going 
into the hills by our house yesterday to help me get some photos.

This is my second Boxy quilt.  It's such a quick, easy pattern to make!
The first one I made was in really bright fabrics so I wanted
to see what a softer version would look like.

Plus I had these two Dover charm packs (by Brenda Riddle Designs for Moda)
in my stash that I thought would be perfect for this pattern!
The pattern calls for charm packs  + solids but instead of using
solids this time, I pulled a bunch of coordinating print fabrics from
my stash to make it extra scrappy!

The blocks are fun to make and very beginner-friendly.
Someone even suggested using a fussy cut fabric in the center
of the blocks and I think that would be a wonderful touch!

This pattern would be perfect in any colorway!
It comes with instructions for twin, queen, and king-size quilts.

The edge-to-edge quilting panto is called Moulin Rouge
and my friend Jen Ostler (@drycreekquilter on Instagram) quilted 
it for me.  I actually let her surprise me with the design
because I couldn't decide between that and another more
geometric design.  I think this turned out beautiful!

I had all of the fabric in my stash except for the binding fabric
(which is the aqua floral from the Dover line).
The background fabric is a cream linen fabric and the
backing is a cream and black plaid woven fabric that
I had in my stash for years!!  Glad I finally found a use for it!

  1. This might be just the ticket. I need to make a softer quilt which you've definitely accomplished here, but it still feels modern. Excited to give this a go!
