squares will do it for me

As always... when i'm looking for something new to do, and i can't find what it is i want to do,...my eyes are seeing squares only.

They see retro squares.

Nine patches... I meant nine... not nive!

Squares are so versatile. I just love them! I love what you did with your nine patches, especially the fussy cut middles.

You have some square goodness going on. I was also playing with squares yesterday, but yours are super cute.

Your squares look so lovely! I made my first patchwork quilts of squares and I know that now after about 20 years people love them.

Jewel said...

How cute! I must say I do like the jumper in the first picture.

What beautiful squares you have joined, Corry!
And centers are charming.

Hi Corry!
See it is "hip to be square" ;-)
Very pretty squares and I love the center motifs you fussy cut for the center.

achter zoiets moois kan je toch alleen maar vierkant achterstaan?

Lovely work Corry! Thanks for the photo of the retro squares. That dress/pinafore is gorgeous! Patchworked clothing is just so lovely. Must make some for winter!

The patchwork dress is so funky! Love your nine patch - looks so fresh in those colours.

Susan said...

You always have the prettiest color combinations, Corry, I love these. You inspire my with the reds and blues. I am embroidering some bluework at this time and your fabric choices would go so well.

Grappig, zo'n vorm die 'het' altijd heeft voor je. Ik ben meer van de ovalen en ronde vormen geloof ik, maar dat quilt misschien lastig. Ik heb ooit een baby deken gemaakt en dan toch op de toplaag nog rondjes gezet. Een soort quilten volgens L. dus.

Een tijdje geleden schreef je toch dat jij kinderserviesjes verzamelt? Ik moest bij de slaapkamer blogpost ook echt aan jou denken, bedankt voor je leuke compliment! cu!

I love the square puppy. I remember my mom having a patchwork full-length skirt when I was little!
Love the Dutch fabrics you use!
