Dorothy's Square in a Square in Indigo and White

This is Dorothy's indigo and white sqare in a square. She wanted "stripes" or lines in the sashing and spirals in the squares. I put spirals in the corners of the sashing, too. The border is from a stencil with curves. Dorothy wanted white thread which worked well in the sashing and the muslin back.

This quilt required some long arm magic since the sashings were not completely straight. The machine was locked in a line so the stitching was going to be absolutely straight. Unfortunately, the straight line of stitching really emphasized the uneven sashing. I ended up shoving poly batting under the roller where the line seemed to wander. This artificially raised the quilt sashing so the line stayed straight within the uneven sashing.

And the back...always my favorite.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
