March sewing - 2 quilt tops

The only sewing I did in March was to make 2 quilt tops.  Both of these are queen size and were quick and easy to make.

This one looks so much better in real life - It's so bright and cheerful.  The corner blocks are black with small white polka dots.

I had a stack of fabric samples that were mostly large floral prints.  I didn't want to cut these into small pieces since the pretty flower designs would be lost.  So I cut them into 9-1/2" squares.  I used 2-1/2" squares for the corner.   I still have to decide on a border.  I'll probably use the same black/white polka dot fabric as the corner blocks.

I had a lot of small scraps left over from recent quilt making, so decided to make a scrappy 9-patch.

I love scrap quilts, love 9-patches, and love a lot of white in a quilt.   So, I'm very happy with this simple little quilt.  I still need to add a border.

  1. I love the quilts. A simple pattern with such beautiful colors looks so fresh. I would be very proud of myself if I made 2 quilts in one month.
