"Marcia Squared"


"Marcia Squared"
Quilted Tablecloth created for the Project Quilting Season Four Challenge ONE -- Square in a Square.

Marcia's Crafty Sewing and Quilting

I chose to use different sizes of squares in the centers of my blocks to create an offset look. Light centers, medium light blue for one side and then a medium blue for the other two sides. Then a dark blue for the lattice strips. I staggered my blocks in each row to offset those too! finishing the outside with a medium blue border and binding to complete my quilted tablecloth.
I choose to work with blues, because it was comfortable for me for the first challenge.
Here is my post on how I constructed the blocks and the quilt.
I finished the quilting right before the Packer Game last night.

I finished the binding this morning.




Thanks for the help selecting the backing fabric.









Love the colorful backing fabric with my dishes!













Just got these blue bowls for Christmas. I may have to cook sometime and use them.  Or just take photos of them with quilts.




 And thanks for help with the name --- "Marcia Squared"


I shared the construction of my blocks and quilt - here
Thanks Kim for the another fun challenge for Project Quilting! If you would like to see all the Quilted Projects created for the Square in a Square challenge click here.

very cute, I love blues!
never did binding that way, always sew on to the back by hand, but I DO have that stitch on my machine, worth a try...

This came out so lovely - and dual purpose is always a plus. Oh, that is close to the blue thread I used. This was a fun experience for me and I look forward to the next challenge.
