Basement Blocks

Months ago I visited one of our local libraries and checked out a very tall stack of quilting books. One of them (I wish I could remember which one!) was all about the stack n' whack method of quilting. Since the cutting process of quilt-making is my least favorite part, I thought I'd give it a try. I went for simple the first time around - squares in squares.

The verdict? Love stack n' whack. Love aqua & brown together. Love the look of straight line quilting (takes forever though). Love having someone tall around to hold up my quilts for photographing!

The fabric is from the Blush line by Moda. It's a perfect match for our basement - this is a photo from last year that shows the color of our basement walls:

I did simple pieced back, using up some of the scraps leftover from the front. The brown fabric is one of the Grunge Basics, and I have to say that I'm not a fan of that grunge look.

The quilt is meant to be a tv-watching quilt for our downstairs tv room (hence the quilt's name: Basement Blocks) and measures 51x67.
