Birthday quilt

OK ... so you're probably tired of this style of quilt ... my last one for a while ... promise. 

If you remember, when I was making this one for my girlfriend, John commented how much he liked it.  So, since today is his birthday ... he got a new quilt!

 The back squares didn't turn out quite as I expected in terms of placement, but they will do and the stripes ... well they are accounting for the fact that I ran out of white!  But they have given me an idea for a whole different quilt ... keep your eyes open for that coming soon!

So here's the birthday boy and his new lap quilt ... amazing how quickly it's getting pulled out when we sit down to watch TV!

As I said ... I'm moving on from this pattern (finally you say?)!  Moving in new directions ;-)


  1. I love the quilt! and I love the back! Never tired of seeing this style of your quilts, they all are so beautiful!

  2. Happy Birthday to John :) He's a lucky guy to get this wonderful quilt and I NEVER tire of seeing this design (or variations of it) because it's so lovely. Do you have directions on how to place the squares??

  3. Another beautiful quilt. I never tire of seeing the same pattern in different colours.

  4. Another great quilt! I'm not tired of this design either but I look forward to seeing what you come up with next!

  5. Thanks all! Colleen ... each of the squares are 10.5". There are 4 across and 6 down. The reason that some of the blocks look smaller than others is that the outer ring of the block is white ... same as the sashing, which gives the optical allusion of different size blocks. I use a 2.5" sashing between all blocks. Let me know if this doesn't make sense.

  6. No, no; don't abandon this style of quilt! I LOVE it! Whenever I think of Shiner's View, and of your work, Lisa, THIS is the design of quilt that comes to mind. So, for me, every quilt you make could be in this design (well, perhaps you could keep varying the color palette!).
