Squared Up

I’ve been going into my sewing room for at least an hour almost every night this week. It’s amazing how much I’m getting accomplished just by committing to ‘do something quilty everyday’!

I had the urge to start a new project so I scrolled through Pinterest and found a simple square in square pattern I had saved a long time ago and decided now was the time. I had just received a fat quarter bundle with 12 fabrics which worked out perfectly for this pattern.

I worked on completing the top and got it glue basted over the next two nights.

And then I had a “squirrel” moment! I kept seeing posts on IG of people completing a paper-pieced block and I just had to give it a go!

These are the individual letters, I’ve since sewn them together but didn’t take a picture…now I don’t know what I’m going to do with it! LOL

I quilted and trimmed the Squared Up quilt last night and put the binding on this morning.

I love using this FMQ Daisy motif when I have square blocks! The quilt is getting a quick wash and then it will go in the ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do with it’ pile! I seriously need to find a charity that wants all my quilty finishes!!


I went to my WW weigh in yesterday and as I expected I was up a pound. I’m going to try a different day for my next WW meeting, I’m not really enthused by the Saturday group…it’s very crowded and I’m just not connecting with the leader. I’m going to go Friday morning and see what happens… if I don’t like that one either I’ll probably make the decision to just change my membership to online only.


That’s all for now…have a great rest of your weekend!

  1. The daisy motif fits perfectly with the fabrics and simple patchwork design. Don’t let it disappear into a pile of quilts (I have such a pile and it makes me sad!) – find a wall space or a table where it can be seen and enjoyed 🙂

    1. Thank you, I’ve been creating too many piles in my sewing room… ‘to be basted’, ‘to be quilted’ and now ‘to be sold/donated’. I don’t like the last one, it warms my heart when a quilt gets used!
