New Pattern: All Squared Up

My "All Squared Up" pattern uses 2 fat quarter rolls of Northcott's new Artisan Spirit fabric. I used the Blue Lagoon and Peacock collections. There are 9 fat quarters in each roll. You can see more information about this collection here.

The design is easy to sew, but does require some organization to keep all the colours and sizes in the right order. Here are my squares all labelled and ready to sew.


Here is the first section ready to sew.

Here is the top half of the quilt.


And here is the finished quilt.


You can read more about this pattern on my website.
