Simple Things

I had some fabric left over from my last Christmas quilt (Believe) so I cut 4" squares & used the tan mottled flannel as the background fabric.  This is the sweet quilt that came out of those squares.  I call it "Simple Things".  I had recently heard a talk that referred to a Quaker hymn that has the words "Tis a gift to be simple, Tis a gift to be free.....".  Anyway, that stuck in my mind & since this quilt is made of simple squares the name had to be "Simple Things".

The quilt is approximately 72" x 85".  The backing is a red mottled flannel with a strip of leftover 4" squares with the small flowers on it.  As you know, I usually have to throw in some leftover blocks or fabric into the backing.

This quilt is for sale - $175.

Love how this turned out!

Machine quilted with a free motion loop pattern.  Reminded me of curling ribbon.

Strip of leftover squares made it into the flannel backing.
