Square Dance

Half Log Cabin blocks
Square Dance, except for the outer border, is made from backing scraps of other Quilts of Valor. This quilt is #19 in the 12 in 2012 Quilt of Valor Challenge

The block is a large (9.5 inch) Half Log Cabin block, made with 3 inch strips. The quilt reminds me of red or blue bandanas; thus, the quilt was named, Square Dance.

Kathy of Kathy's Fancy Stitching volunteered to machine quilt it for me. Thanks, Kathy!

  4. That's pretty amazingly lined up, I have the feeling that if I did it, we would be calling it rectangle dance.

    Great job.

  7. I really like this one! It is aptly named, for sure! It looks like there is a subtle difference in the shades of white blocks. The pattern and colors work so well together. My eye sees the blue and red blocks as a background design, and the white blocks look like they sit right on top. Well done, Nancy! And this is #19? WOW.

  9. Beautiful quilt! It prompted me to go back and look at some of your photos from the past. Nancy, you have moving and thought provoking photos all through your blog posts! I enjoyed an hour of looking through them and want to thank you for images of Wyoming winters, gorgeous quilts, stained glass windows, knitting, and history (both American and foreign. The next time I need a stress free hour I will come back and look at more of your pictures.
