Bright Squares Quilt...on the Frame!

I bought this bright squares top from a seller on etsy. I just loved it and had to have it. It is a twin size so it will be used on a bed or to cuddle with in the car on trips! Besides...when you spend only a few dollars...and you know the top is worth so much more...you would be crazy NOT to buy a quilt top this way!

This top is made from poly/cotton solid fabrics...so I chose a bright olivey-green poly/cotton twin sheet for the backing. Now, I know some of you just cringed and are thinking I must have lost my mind! Remember, this quilt is going to be used by my kids and I and be drug around. Nothing wears like cotton/poly sheets! So there!

I am just showing you a sneak peek of the quilting at this time. I am quilting a freehand, my design, edge to edge pattern. I am using a variagated thread which blends beautifully with the top fabrics.

Did I say I love this top? I think I am going to love it even more when I finish. Gotta run and get back to quilting!

An ideas on a binding color?? I am going to check out my stripes and see if something doesn't yell "Pick Me!", unless someone has a better idea.


  1. the quilting looks great-I love doing freehand all overs. And the vareigated thread is perfect.

  2. That is such a fun looking quilt, Kristina. I really love your quilting design too. Hope you can find something really cute for the binding to finish it off.
