Quilt Exhibit: Square Quilts



Hello! Welcome back to the Musee de la Grande Route. There are two types of quilts that can be called square quilts. One is quilts that finish to a size that is square. The other is quilts that are made out of squares. Our current exhibit is showcasing quilts that are made mostly out of square blocks (and a few rectangles). I have enough quilts to show you the square ones that I have omitted the ones that are made only with rectangles.


I believe this is my only finished quilt that is made only with squares.

 This quilt is made with squares and rectangles that are close to squares.

This quilt uses 10 inch blocks that are primarily pieced using squares of smaller sizes.

This one has pieced square blocks made mostly of squares and rectangles.

This quilt uses squares, most of which are pieced.

This quilt uses square blocks, some pieced, and some appliqued.

This quilt uses square blocks with more complicated piecing.

This one has more complicated piecing, but there are four square blocks.

 Another quilt made with square blocks with more complicated piecing.

This one doesn't start out with squares, but does result in square applique blocks.


This quilt has a border of squares around a panel.
I've made a lot of quilts with squares, and since I already have a lot on exhibit, I will refer you to this Trunk Show post from 2015 which has some more square quilts.

It's always a treat to go on one of your tours.

I like quilts made of all squares. They let the fabric be the star of the show.

You have a lot of beautiful quilts. Quilts made of squares can be varied in many ways, as you have shown.
My very first quilt, well, a cushion actually, that I made in school, was made of the same size squares. It still stands out in memory, because just like Wanda said, the fabric became the star.

I love the Drunkard's Path quilt. And the one with the scalloped border. They are just beautiful!
