simple sixteen patch

Winter is definitely here. It's cold, snowy, and so terribly windy outside, but when child #1 got home from school today I managed to bribe her (chocolate always works with her, always!!!) to snap a few photos of my newest finished quilt.


It's a very simple 16 patch quilt. I love how it has that old time charm without being fussy or complicated.


4" unfinished squares in blue, aqua, black, and gray combined with low volume fabrics. Simple as that. And very quick, too.


I did straight line quilting along both sides of each seam and finished the quilt off with gray binding.


The quilt finished at about 65" x 80" and now that it's been washed and dried it has that wonderfully soft and "want to snuggle in" feel. Oh, I so love a quilt that just came out of the dryer.

Thanks so much for reading. Svetlana
