Off Centered Sherbet Squares

Off Cenetered Sherbet Squares Front

Despite my continued “Multitasking“, I finished a quilt this week! I mentioned this quilt top last week. It has been in process (ahem, on the design wall) for maybe six months? I had initially planned for it to be as big as my original Off Centered Innocence quilt but I decided to face reality and time constraints and finish this one up as toddler sized. The pattern for this quilt is my Off Centered Squares pattern.

Off Cenetered Sherbet Squares Top

This quilt uses a variety of Moda cross weaves, combined with Kona white and a tan Essex linen. I have now quilted with a lot of different types of fabrics – cotton, linen, voile, double gauze, shot cottons, home dec, flannel…cross weaves have been my biggest challenge. They really like to stretch and shift. However, the end result was worth the stress. This is one very soft quilt.

Off Cenetered Sherbet Squares Back

The back of the quilt was made with left over cross weaves as well as some white and tan Kona cottons. I quilted it using a meandering free motion style and the binding is also a cross weave. It measures 36″ x 48″ and is listed in my shop!

    These colors are not ones that I would choose, but I sure do like this! I suppose it goes to show that I should step out of my box a lot more. :)

    Comment number one said it for me. Love it and the colours are so fun. I’m a bit concerned about your comments on the cross-weaves since I have a quilt planned using a cross-weave for the sashing. I wish I’d known that before I bought it. Oh well, maybe I’ll just spray-starch it to death first and cross my fingers.
