Springy Granny Squares Finally Revealed

Springy Granny Squares by quiltytherapy #grannysquares #babyquilt #florals #springdecor #floraldecor #nurserydecor #floralquilt

I’m excited to share this quilt with you.  The input and response to selecting the back was awesome.  Thank you for participating.  Here it is…the back of the quilt.

The vintage sheet is pure perfection.  Soft, drapes wonderfully, and the colors coordinate well with the front.  Notice anything different about this finished quilt?  More free motion quilting.

Confession time:  I have avoided FMQ for so long, but I truly enjoy it.  Why did I resist for years?  My quilting time has been cut down by a couple of hours. Instant time saver.  Loops are my jam for now.  I tried meandering and quickly ripped it out.

This quilt turned out much better than I could have imagined.  Tiny polka dots on a pale green was the perfect binding choice.  It provides a gentle frame around the quilt.

Floral fabrics stretched me creatively especially on the front of a quilt.  I don’t mind them on the back and often choose florals to coordinate on the back.  Maybe it was the scale or colors in this specific collection that didn’t originally inspire me too much.  As I noted in my last post, it helped to chop them into 2.5″ squares.

This quilt is available in my Etsy shop.  Wouldn’t this be a cute baby shower gift this spring?

  1. This is a beautiful quilt! I love it! Your free motion quilting looks great!!

  2. Looks great – nice backing choice! FMQ is lots of fun – and the bonus is the more you do it, the better you get. You’ll probably find at some point you want to try some other designs too, so just go for it.

  3. Such a pretty quilt, I love all your florals! And great fmq too!

  4. This turned out great. I love the backing. Yes, FMQ can be lots faster than straight line quilting. I can’t meander worth a darn but loops, much better. 😀

    1. YES! Loops for days over here. Meandering isn’t working with my brain.

  5. […] walked away from it and went to work on Spring Granny Squares.  An idea struck to create half square triangles.  Hmmm, that could work.  I grabbed my Hera […]
