It's my first quilt finish for September--the Square Dance baby quilt is complete!
Square Dance baby quilt
39" x 46"
The blocks for this quilt were made as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge throughout 2020. I made about 30 blocks each month using the assigned color of the month along with the next color of the rainbow progression. By the end of the year, I had the blocks all joined together into two small quilt tops.
The two quilt tops above each measured 40" x 60" When I decided to use one of them for this baby quilt, I decided to remove a couple rows of blocks, taking the size down to 40" x 48". After quilting and washing, it ended up at 39" x 46".
The quilting is wavy lines following the chains of squares that zigzag through the quilt. I used a whole rainbow of thread colors, matching each to the fabrics.
The backing is a flannel that I have used on multiple earlier quilts. I wish I had a whole bolt of this fabric!
This quilt should get packed up and mailed tomorrow. It is going to a niece who is expecting a little girl next month. We are planning a family visit in December and hope to meet the new family member then!
Finishing this quilt was also my One Monthly Goal for September. I will be linking up with Elm Street Quilts at the end of the month.
