11 sherbet squares.


This quilt is finally finished!  I am embarrassed to say that this is my quilt for the Inspire Circle at do. Good Stitches from last September!  Why it took me so long to finish, I have no idea.
The color scheme for this quilt was inspired by a picture of some kind of ice cream (I'm guessing grape sherbet?) I had pinned a while ago, which is why the quilt is called Sherbet Squares.
I added some scrappy borders to the sides of the quilt to increase the width a bit.  It was looking a little too rectangular with just the blocks.  I'm not usually one to add borders but I think they really make the blocks pop in this case.
I quilted it in wavy lines (again!), with gray thread.  I think I'll be taking a break from the wavy quilting for a little while now!  
I backed this one in a thrifted purple striped flannel that is perfect for this quilt!  I was happy to find such a large cut of fabric in my stash in this color.
It's bound in Kona Coal and includes one of our cute do. Good Stitches labels designed by Lee at Freshly Pieced!
It's all ready to be shipped off to a child in need through Project Linus!
p.s. Don't forget to stop by Canoe Ridge Creations this week to check out all of the stops on Megan's Festival of HSTs!  I'll be back tomorrow with a fun HST block tutorial!
