Recess Square-in-a-Square

First quilt of the year is done!

Recess Square-in-a-Square

And just under the wire for this month's entry in Melissa and Shanna's A Lovely Year of Finishes (January Goal post here.)

I used 1 Jelly Roll of Recess by American Jane for the quilt top. And the backing is one of the coordinating prints from the Saggy Baggy Elephant collection by Clothworks.

This quilt top went together quickly... it was one of the two quilt tops I pieced at last year's HMQG weekend retreat. And once I finally got around to basting it, the quilting went quickly too.

It looks great! Congratulations on a beautiful finish. I'm going to have to try that with some scraps I have around here.

Well done! It's a beautiful finish. Might have to do that with a spare Jelly Roll I've got hanging around...
