Sour Dough Squares

I'm a 2-inch square addict.  I sit them beside my sewing machine in a pretty box and I sew two together as leaders and enders.  The quilt shown here is one that I've finished using the 2-inch squares. 

I always cut 2-inch squares when I have a piece of fabric left on my cutting table.  The I sew some up for awhile, then I add more and it keeps going.  I've done this for many years.  In this quilt I sewed 5 together then pressed them all in one direction.  I continued until I had about 250 of them.  Then I sewed them into rows and added the pretty pink strips in between.

This is the back of the quilt.  My sister has the quilt now.


  1. Love love love this one! I think you have converted me from a 2.5" to 2" collector!

  2. Thank you so much. I always say "the smaller the cuter." Four-inch blocks are always cuter than 12" blocks, right? So I think the 1-1/2" finished sizes are always more interesting than the 2" finished sizes.
