Grandmother Square Quilt Finished!

I started a Grandmother Square Quilt about two years ago.  A few months back I looked at it and realized I only had a few blocks left to make so I got them done.  I loved how the quilt looked.  I decided that I needed the quilt professionally quilted.  This is the FIRST quilt that I have had professionally done.  Here is the quilt top done.  I used 30's reproduction fabrics.
 Quilted and bound.  I apologize for the blurry picture.
 My quilter had a pattern called 30's mini flowers which I thought was so right for the quilt.  I pieced the background with leftover blocks from the grandmother squares.  I had to cut a few more thought. The background fabric is a Moda Solid called Butter.  I love butter with 30's reproduction fabrics.
 Done!  A tick off the long list of UFO's and I love it.


  1. It's gorgeous, and I love the 30s fabrics. Congratulations on a beautiful finish. I love the quilting design you chose, too.

  2. It's beautiful! Love the Grandmother square block in the 30's prints... seems so appropriate! I like how you finished the back, and the quilting is perfect!

  3. It looks so old fashioned and it is very pretty! The red binding is the perfect finish! Well done Chantal!

  4. I really like that you used the same fabrics for cornerstones. Enjoy your beautiful quilt!

  5. This is gorgeous! Congratulations on a lovely finish. I'm trying to decide on my next scrap quilt - maybe this could be it? (I see too many that I like, I cant decide!)
