I used some super saved Road 15 scraps by Sweetwater for this quilt. It was a perfect fit as I had Jelly Roll Strips in the color prints and Fat Eighths in the low volume prints left over from from my In Your Neighborhood Quilt, that I made back in 2013. And don't they just go perfectly in this new Square Dance quilt!!! So glad I saved those for this as it is just perfect for a new little guy :)
I just love the bold geometric pattern in this quilt and using a black solid as the pop fabric really worked to do just that, pop!!! I love it's contrast to the soft prints. And I am over the moon excited about that low volume background. I tell you what, I should do low volume backgrounds more often, because every time I do, I just love it!!!
And for the quilting, I did one of my favorite designs. All over Swirl and Curl free motion quilting. It really is so much fun, is nice and fast, and gender neutral, which is important when you are making an all boy quilt ;) I used 402 So Fine Pearl as it blended perfectly into the prints and background, in fact it blended so well it was sometimes hard to see when quilting. And I just love the way it pops on the black and gives it a little more depth ;)
And now it is all set to be tied up in a bow and given to my SIL ;) I am so super excited!!! Now all that is left to do is wait for the little guy to get here and then it is snuggle city!!!
Like all my patterns, Square Dance has size options so you can make the quilt size that fits you ;) You will find 4 size options, a Baby, Lap, Picnic, and a Queen/King size. The blocks really do go together fast and it is beginner and expert friendly alike, perfect for anyone who just wants to have some fun sewing time :)
And just like all my patterns, this is a full color pattern that can be printed in either page format or book format. It is filled with lots of wonderful illustrations to guide you along each step of the way. You are going to have so much fun putting this together ;) And of course, if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to email me ;)
And that is the new Square Dance quilt and pattern and I am so excited to release it !!!! Again, the pattern can be found found in my Craftsy Shop or in my Etsy Shop and will be on special for $5.50 all this week ;)
Thanks for popping in today and I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
