pink framed square, quilt completed

Pink Framed Square
88 by 84 inches
completed 2023

It is a wedding gift to our daughter and son-in-law.

You can read my process with cutting and sewing instructions here:
I like how on point quilts make their own border.

Pink is Kona Peony
Back is Earth Day Fly Away by August Wren for Dear Stella
Quilted with a wool batt by Sue Divarco

The quilt is inspired by a vintage one Bonnie Hunter had on her Instagram last summer. I drafted it and worked on it thinking it might make a dent in my 1 1/2 inch solid squares. It used them up!  So I paused this quilt and made the sewing machine quilt to generate more solid squares. 

It is difficult to photograph this quilt. The closer up pictures are nearer to true color.

My design drafted from a vintage quilt. 
Use at your pleasure.
