Pattern Testing - Squared Off

Cindy @ Stitchin at Home has released a new pattern, and I tested it for her.  You can see Cindy's version here.  The pattern is available for sale here at Craftsy.

My version is the baby size.  I used Kona Lagoon, Chartreuse, Highlight, and White.


The colours don't appear as rich as they truly are...daylight is quickly disappearing earlier and earlier each day.


Simple straight line quilting.  I decided to take the quilting into the border because I didn't want to tie off and cut any threads.  But I love the pattern the lines created in the border.


Giveaway - Leave a comment for a chance to win a copy of Cindy's new pattern.  Head over to Cindy's blog for a second chance to win.  The giveaway is open until midnight Thursday, August 31.
