Scrappy squares...

See these scrappy squares?
Well....Do you remember the custom made especially for me honey-bun?
I told you about it last week...anyhoo...

It's what I have been working with this last few days in my studio. I used it to cut alot of squares...and I mean alot!

I had 1 1/2" squares everywhere...and I mean literally everywhere in my studio because it has been so stinkin hot here....



And so I had my fan on and my squares were flyin' around like confetti...maybe in celebration of a finish!




I used over 1000 of them....



To make these 1" finished squares...


Which are the sections for joining the blocks together in this quilt....









My "Paper Doll" quilt!
I dropped it off to my friend Helen for quilting yesterday morning....whooo hooo!

I'm sure you're excited to get it back. I know I would be bouncing around waiting by the phone.

This is going to be another special heirloom. By the way, who gets the quilt someday? Kassidy or Sophie? You just might have to make another one or they could take turns each year.

I need to look away because I just know I'll become addicted to those tiny, little squares and then nothing else will get done! I want to make some right now. So cute.

Lori...what an amazing quilt! Gosh I wish I lived somewhere near you, I'd take every applique class you taught...your applique is unbelievable.

Wow! I can't wait to see it all put together and quilted! I love the blocks. They are so cute!!!!!

Congratulations on a finish of your quilt. I've loved seeing it come together month after month.
And those 1" squares look challenging. I don't even see a pin, and yet they all match perfectly.

Cute, cute, cute...can't wait to see the finished quilt!

You know I adore that darling quilt and can't wait to see it quilted. Helen will do a wonderful job. I love the little 1" sguare border. I think that will give it such a perfect finish.

Jeanne said...

I'm looking forward to seeing the finished quilt! It's been fun watching the progress.

Holy Cow. Oh my gosh. I'm dying to see this quilt. Your applique is like painting. It is perfect. I admire your talent so much. And the tiny squares!!! Really I just can't wait. Remember I'm leaving on Monday with very very limited internet (you know what I mean in Star Valley and my sister is 40 min outside afton on a dirt road). So before I leave I want to see this. Get better. Pass that darn thing!

I absolutely love this quilt! I've never anticipated a pattern coming out, as much as this one. I've thought about it more than I can say.
So excited. Thanks for your creativeness!

Michelle said...

I love your quilt, can't wait to see it all finished. I am like Carol and wish I lived closer to take your applique classes. Have you ever thought about doing a post on applique to help out all of us who do not live near by? I would love to have pointers from you. Thanks for all your wonderful posts.

P.S. Sorry for the freak out. I just got so excited! Can't wait to see the finished product!

Sherry said...

I so love that Paper Doll quilt. Those fabrics you used for your custom honey bun and seeing them stitched together! OH...I love it all. I can't wait to see this quilt when it comes back to you. You did an amazingly wonderful job on this quilt Lori. You are one special quilter. Your work always inspires me. Try to stay cool. It hit 100 with heat index of 110 here in the St. Louis/IL area today. Have a great week-end!

Very nice! I have that same blue glass basket. I got it for a wedding gift 23 years ago! I have never seen another one. So cool. Have a great day! :o)
