Innocent Crush Rectangle Squared Quilt

So… I finally finished my first quilt of 2011!

I started this one at the end of 2010, and wrote up a tutorial on how to make these blocks. I even got Morgan to sandwich it and then somehow it got stacked in a pile of finished quilts and I forgot all about it. Then when browsing the FITF flickr group the other day I saw a couple other lovely quilt tops made using my tutorial, and I realized I needed to get this one done!

I quilted this one with straight lines, running both vertically and horizontally alongside the sashing. I went with double lines on every other row and column to give it a bit more interest.

It’s bound with a bright spring green solid, which I think really complements all the blues and purples of the Innocent Crush fabrics.

The backing is one of my favorite prints from this line, along with a bit of patchwork detail at the top and bottom. It measures about 40″ x 55″ and makes a great lap quilt or a cute crib sized quilt! It’s listed in the shop!

Tutorial can be found here.

Fabrics are from Anna Maria Horner's Innocent Crush line - the Charmed colorway. These fabrics can be found at many of the shops listed in my sidebar.

    I like the little postage stamp size squares next to the larger blocks.

  22. 21

    Love it! I was never the biggest fan of the innocent crush fabrics – too many colours going on in most quilts made with it, but I like the way you’ve pared the fabrics right back and let that gorgeous colourway speak for itself.

    Cool pictures, I like the lighthouse in the background, it’s so pretty! I really enjoyed making this quilt top, so thank you for the tutorial :) I made the purple and green one in your flickr pool. It’s a great one for fat quarters.

    Holy cow! Look at where you live!!! What is that lighthouse in the background? Oh, wait.
    The quilt. LOVELY. But, wait…the trees…is that an inlet? So – - sincere, this place you live.
    Oh, the quilt. The fabrics, the pattern. Yep. Stunning. All of it.

    Who’s the courageous soul that held up the quilt in the snow? I always complain when the wife makes me hold up her quilts for photos, but we live in sunny CA. Looking at this picture, I don’t think I can every complain again.

    Hi I just finished making the top from your tutorial. My OLD machine or Me had a hard time getting the lines straight, on the whole it looks great. If this is the entry for the quilt and I happen to win I have four Grand daughters I’m making quilts for, hopefully for Christmas.

    I haven’t been reading your blog very long, a friend sent me the link, but what I really like is the contemporary and innovative approach to quilting. I’ve collected a lot of quilting books over the last 14 years that I have been quilting but your blog provides a fresh spark of creativity to a very traditional pursuit. There is nothing stuffy about the guilts pictured here. The latest addition of your new son to the photo stream is an added treat. Keep up the good work and keep those posts coming. Love your blog, –Rona

    I used this as inspiration for making my own version – just completed. I wanted one big enough for a queen bed, so made each component larger and then added more and longer rows. I love it! I really look forward to each of your new designs!
