Finished Quilt: Squares and Rectangles

Squares and Rectangles (front)

Here is another finish.  This is the quilt that my five-year-old daughter and I worked on together.  She had a lot of creative input and I love the way it turned out.  After she sketched her squares and rectangles, I had to figure out a way to make that into a quilt.  

I was inspired by this quilt on flickr.  I liked the way the prints floated on the background instead of stacking them all together.  I was planning on a space between every colored piece, but my daughter insisted on stacking a few of them.  Good call, right?  The quilting is inspired by Jacquie Gering and Malka Dubrawsky.

It was a fast and furious finish to get these bound before Tuesday night's meeting.  If it feels like these came out of nowhere, trust me they didn't.  The three quilts I finished for Jacob's Heart has taken every spare minute and lots of support from my family.  There may have been a few Instagram breaks in there too.  I could not do this every month, but I am so happy I took the time this month.  

I have one more to share with you tomorrow.  It turned out to be the snuggliest one!
