I love to cuddle under a blanket while watching a movie, we all do around here... So this year, among others, I want to make a few warm lap quilts for our TV room. It's time to say goodbye to those knotted fleece blanket I made a gazillion years ago.
yesterday ... Let's say it was a quick photo shoot, I kept hearing noises coming from the wooded area and that, made me a bit nervous...
This is a no sashing version of the traditional granny square.
Once I designed the layout, the squares were sewn together into rows and then, the rows together. I decided on three solid square between each "blocks" to keep the same ratio between the "blocks" than the classic sashed version.
On the above picture, you can see a plaid print between the blocks, they were finally discarded as it looked too traditional. I had in mind a more contemporary version.
I used different fabrics from Juliana Horner and a bit of Kaffe Fassett's shot cotton in Prune (for the center square). I love how it turned out and I am quite excited about it. Don't you love that purple square in the middle of each block?
The background is Essex Linen in Indigo, I bought this piece of fabric last year, it was one of those impulse purchase and it sat there for a while not knowing what I would do with it.
I love this quilt and this one is for "moi" and I have in mind warm and heavy.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
