Square in Square scrappy quilt done! (60)

In this post, I showed a square in square quilt that I had completed.  I also wrote down on that post the dimensions of fabric needed to make a square from 1 inch to 3.5 inches in a 5 inch square, but I will put it at the end of this post as well.  I finally finished it, and it is ready for a soon to be born baby girl.

I also used the Milly line of fabric for a backing, but I had left over squares of fabric, so I made a strip of those down one side.

 

 

I bound it with a stripe patterned fabric.  This quilt was 44.5 inches by 52.5 inches before washing, 41.5 inches by 51 inches after washing.

Thanks for stopping by!
