small squares

I finished this quilt a couple months ago, but didn't want to post it until it was in the hands of it's new owner (my nephew). This was originally going to be a zigzag quilt, but at the last minute I cut up my 5 inch squares into 2.5 inch squares and sewed them all together. I think I really like it this way...a simple design.

color inspiration came from here.

I used heather ross buses again as the backing (I am quickly running out of this print, and it's my favorite...)it's been a long time since I've done an all squares quilt, and I forgot how much I like it!

Not much sewing/quilting going on here, we welcomed our baby girl, Ginger Anne, three weeks ago today. She's our 3rd--I swear time has sped up, days go by and I feel like I haven't accomplished much, lol. We are starting to find some routine now, and looking forward to the holiday season (which will add to the craziness!).
