Stacked Squares Top and NTT

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  I've finished up my Wild Thing's queen size quilt top, and I am so pleased with how it turned out.  More importantly, he loves it too!

I laid this quilt out a little differently from the other Stacked Squares quilts I've done.  I made the quilt a little less busy by allowing more of each square to show.  It took a little bit of playing, but I love the layout, and I'm really happy with the movement of the quilt.

Since injuring my neck last fall and having months of physical therapy, I have vowed not to finish anymore quilts this large on my home machine, so this one is off at a friend's being longarmed, and I can't wait to get it back.  The binding is all ready for it which is good, because Wild Thing is ready to sleep under his quilt!

Last week's party was full of amazing inspiration, like this fun quilt from Celine at Espritpatch-

This quilt by Micki at 2 Dogs Studio is so calming-

Myra at Busy Hands Quilts showed off this fresh and cheery quilt-

And finally, isn't this summery quilt by Laura at Slice of Pi Quilts so yummy?

Y'all really know how to bring the eye candy each week, so without further ado, let's party, friends!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. That is a beautiful top or should I say handsome? Of course your Wild Thing approved. Such a perfect balance of colors - loving the pop of yellow to brighten the blues and grey.

  2. Nice work on Wild Thing's new quilt! I'll be looking forward to seeing what your longarmer does with it.

  3. Nice job on your Wild Thing's quilt top, Kelly! Your previous versions of this pattern were all beautiful, but I can definitely see the extra thought and care that went into planning the color layout on this one. It really makes for an extra special impact.

  4. Your son's quilt turned out great Kelly. Lots of wonderful movement.

  5. Your quilt top turned out beautifully. I'm sure that it will look even better quilted.

  6. Thank you for the feature, Kelly! I peeked at the longarm quilting over on Instagram! Hands on cheeks wow! Totally worth having it sent out!!

  7. Thank you very much for featuring my quilt!
