i must have told you a thousand times……

I LOVE squares!! I really do.
I think squares are easy to piece by machine
because a square is nice and simple and has four equal sides.
And by using different colours and fabrics all kind of patterns can be made.
Plus it's easy to sew, no difficult curves.

I'm making a nine patch from bits and pieces that are lying around my cutting table.

I use a small rose on white print for the stripes and dark blue/white checked fabric for the corner stones.

Nothing to do with squares but.....
By coincidence I came across this fabric that matches perfect with my log cabin Autumn quilt. Great to make the backing from.

So you see a lot of sewing is going on here.
Have a lovely (sewing?) day too.
