Yahoo! I finished my Easter quilt. My squares were cut into several pieces and I really like the scrappy look. Hurry on up Spring!

Enjoying the day!

WOW! I love that, Christy. Great combination with your basket blocks. Did the baskets use fabric from the 10" squares, too? And such a great border.

Yes, it is all made from 10" squares, except the white which is just scraps. The grouping of 4 baskets fits into a 12" block, so they're not big. It will be used as a table topper. Thanks again for organizing these swaps.

Enjoying the day!

That Easter quilt is beautiful Cristy. Done just in time to show it off for the Easter holiday!

Here is a picture of my music squares quilt. Not elaborate quilting, just stitch in the ditch. I love all of the blocks from my Farmgirl sisters all over the country.

Hi Rita

Did you add two more squares of your own? It appears there are 30 squares in your quilt. I too just want a simple block quilt for my first one. I am new to quilting and have been trying to figure out how to arrange so I don't have a long skinny quilt, 4x7.

Nancy -

I know I have added squares to several of the swap square sets to make a quilt larger or more of the measurements I want. For the music quilt I am making I think I am adding quite a few to make the quilt 6 across and 6 down, plus the sashing.

Nancy, yes I added squares to make 30. Wanted it to be easy and it was not so bad. I did 5 across and 6 down so it was just a little longer than wide. Made the top and cut batting to fit the top. Then I measured the back 1 1/2 inc wider all the way around. Centered the quilt top and batting and started stitching. To finish I folded over the excess for the edging. Very simple but quick. I am ready for the next one.

Does our squares have to be used in a quilt? I am thinking of using them in a stuffed teddy bear or rabbit. Has anyone else ventured out of the whelm, if so, what did you make?

Oh, no! They can be used for craft projects, mini aprons, stuffed animals, or whatever you want. They are to build your stash.

I've made a few microwave bowl potholders with some, and plan to use some for towel toppers, table runners, wall hangings, etc. LOL!

Here are some tops (one unfinished so far) I've made with 10" squares from our 10" square swaps:

Christmas squares made into a Christmas Wonky Stars Bedrunner


Boys squares - quilt top for future baby boy (none that I know of, yet)


Music squares - I love all the different musical squares we swapped, and I saw this sashing with corner stars on line and I had to use it for this quilt, but it takes a lot of pieces and a lot of sewing to finish each row. The star points and corner stones are a black-on-black with treble clef design. This is only half the quilt. When the top is done, I will add another border.

The projects are all cute Linda, but by far my favorite is the last one with the stars! So much so I may copy you!

You are welcome to copy me, Jana. I copied it from a quilt I saw in one of the quilting emails I get. It's not hard - for these 10" squares I cut 10" x 2-1/2" sashing strips, 1-1/2" squares to make half-square triangles on all four corners of the sashing strips; then used 2-1/2" squares in the corners. I love the way it is looking.

Linda and Bonnie, thank you.
I need to find a pattern to use my patriotic fabrics from 2 years ago. I bought a couple of extra fabrics for that group too...

Here is a picture of my finished 10" music squares quilt. I gave it to Ed's son and his wife for Christmas. They are very active in music in their church.

I have another quilt of two to post pictures of here. I will try to do that tomorrow. Does anyone else have more of their 10” squares completed in projects or quilts? We all would love to see them.
