It's Hip to be Square . . .

Actually, this quilt pattern is called Good to be Square, but I can't get this 1986 hit out of my head . . . Huey Lewis & the News - (wait to load)    Sorry - now I bet you'll have this song singing in your head for the next little while . . . or maybe it's just me!

This quilt is made from a beautiful selection of batik fabrics . . . Hobbs 80/20 batting; Glide thread

Because it is so "square", I chose a nice array of freestyle swirls and teardrops to give it some movement.

Good to be Square - Batiks

Pieced backs are all the rage . . .

Good to be Square - pieced back

 and I added my little bit of heart . . .

"Heart of Rock n Roll"

So, listen to the songs in your head - "It's Hip to be Square" . . .

and remember - Dance like no one is watching  :)

"If this is it" . . . "I want a new drug"

Wow Bev - I can't believe you have this one pieced already - never mind quilted. Have you slept at all in the last week?? The quilt turned out awesome Bev! The fabric choices are gorgeous and the quilting spot on - great work!
