If You Give a Quilter Three Thousand Two Inch Blocks......

If you give a quilter three thousand two inch squares in various shades of blue and green......

she will first make this quilt:
She will name it Bermuda Blues and she will love it and eventually she will give it to a woman she has met on the island who has many health concerns.
Then she will look at that box of 2,280 blue and green squares again and create this quilt:
She will name this quilt 'Bermuda Triangles' and she will love it and eventually she will give it to a woman on the island who was undergoing cancer treatments.
Some time will pass and the quilter will get distracted by other fabric and projects. But one day she will stumble upon that box of 1,280 two inch squares again.  She will take them out and create this quilt top:
Inspired to use the remaining 890 squares up and be done with blue and green two inch squares for a VERY LONG TIME she created this quilt top:
 And then she will rest because the box of two inch squares is almost empty.  You can't make a quilt with 314 two in squares, or can you????

I am linking up to Amanda Jean's Finish it Up Friday!!  Have a great week!  I will be back next week some more great quilting news!

Wow. All that beauty out a box of squares. I love the challenge of making a quilt out of 300 x 2 inch squares.

I remember seeing the first post and pictures of Bermuda Blues and thought how beautiful it was. What I didn't recall was it was made from 2" squares. Yikes! All three of these quilts are beautiful and inspiring. Not just for the craftsmanship, but for what's become of them. How can you not feel good, even if only for a short while, when you're wrapped up in one of those?

Oh my, what beautiful quilts! I think I love the first one the best (though it's really hard to choose!) Two inches? Oh my! (Yes, I know I already said "oh my" but I just couldn't think of anything more descriptive of my reaction!)

I just found your blog via the linky party, and I love your quilts. They are beautiful. You are an awesome woman/quilter/friend. I'm sure each of those women love and appreciate those quilts more than you know :)

Wow! After seeing the first few quilt you've made I have no doubt you can make a great quilt from those last few squares. What a treasure trove that box of squares was!!

My guess is that if anyone can make a quilt out of 300 two inch squares you can, furthermore that quilt will probably bring comfort and happiness to someone special ( But I think that everyone who MHC gives a quilt to, just may be special).

Is that a challenge to send you more squares? I love what you have done with the boxes of 2" square, very well done of you!
