Midnight Square Dance

....is the name of my latest finish!


(I changed it slightly because I found a pattern name by its 

original working title!)

Straight line quilting in a grid formation

Here are some close-ups I shared on IG....

I added some hand quilting to the white stars

I have had this quilt finished for a while now,


but wanted to get some 'glamour' shots while I was on


holiday in north-east Victoria.


Bright is always beautiful during Autumn....



and I did have my trusty quilt holder with me!


 While we were away, I visited a friend who had found this 

great backdrop for me.....


so we couldn't resist a couple more photos!


 This is the old Wandiligong cool store....


No plans for a Grand Designs renovation here, I'm afraid!


I am giving this to a dear friend soon.

Lifetime Quilt number 105

5th quilt finish for 2019

Happy sewing!

  1. I just love the scrappiness of this one. It's so cheerful and will make a lovely gift. I've been collecting small squares from my scraps in anticipation of some kind of postage stamp quilt.

  4. I absolutely love your Midnight Square Dance. I am currently sorting scraps from clothing construction and other since the 80's. So a scrappy pattern is definitely in the mix.

  11. You know I love this quilt, Susan! The scrappy patchwork-ness of it is so appealing, especially with those reverse contrasting stars. Great photos too. Is a "cool store," a old storage place with ice for keeping things cold, or a shop for purchasing cold drinks? The texture of the building is a good backdrop for your quilt. Such good work. The recipient must surely love this one.

  12. Now I need to come and go on vacation in Northern Victoria. And bring a quilt.

    All kidding aside, it's a beautiful quilt, and photographed in equally lovely places with great backdrops. Did you do Leaders/Enders to make those central patchwork squares? Congratulations on finishing this fun quilt!
