Would You Like To Square Dance?

Remember a month or so ago, I had quite the quandary over which fabrics to use for a new quilt.  Well....the quilt top is finished and I can finally show you how it turned out.

 This quilt is one I've had on my want-to-do list for a long time.  I designed it a while ago and just had to find the right time and the right fabrics for it.  It feels great to finally have it completed.  It's called Square Dance, and is included in Journey Five of the Prairie Women's Sewing Circle club.  

 Initially, I fell in love with the block, called Crazy Ann.  What an interesting block, don't you think?

It has great movement on the quilt.  It looks like a Dutchman's Puzzle doesn't it?  The block is on point in this quilt, and has a Dutchman's Puzzle center, but the entire block is the Crazy Ann block.  I think it's so fun.  Square Dance is off to Ronda's to be quilted. Those large setting tri's are just begging for a wonderful quilting design.  I think the fabrics work well together.
Hope you like it too!



 Time for an update about my Nabby's Dowry Sew~Along......

I, like the shop owners out there, are just waiting for the Pin Money and Prairie Woven's fabrics to ship from the warehouse.  All we know is "June delivery".  I'll keep you posted right here as to when the fabrics come in, when the kits ship, and the when the official start of the sew~along will be.  Don't worry....I won't begin until everyone receives their fabric.  

My thanks to everyone from around the world who ordered the fabric kit!  If you've been thinking about ordering a kit, you still have a bit of time.  

The last day to order a kit is Saturday, June 8th.

  1. I am a red, white and blue lover and altho this doesn't have white in it, it makes my heart sing.

  2. Oh, this is so fun! I am going to have to put this on my list--I have a good friend named Ann for whom I have never made a quilt. I know what to make now!! : )

  3. It turned out great! The colors are strong, but perfect for the block, and the overall look is very pleasing. Good for you!
