I have stolen some time here and there and made lots of progress on my Split Square quilt. In fact, the top is finished!!
I am so in love with this. I know it’s silly as it isn’t an intricate design. It’s not fancy. It’s one of the those quilts that the fabrics speak more to me than the design does.
It between all the things I’ve been busy with I can’t believe that I started this and have it into a quilt top in about two weeks time. The really unusual part is that aside from last Saturday I don’t really feel like I’ve spent that much time on the quilt.
It does make a big difference with how much I get done when I’m not working on charity quilts.
Happily I’ve been able to keep up with the mystery…and now that this is done, I’ll be heading back to my UFO quilting. I’d love to see a completed quilt (or two) before the new year. I think I could do it as two UFO tops are hanging on the rack waiting for backings…Maybe that should be my challenge…Two UFOs finished before the end of the year!!

Love, love, love this quilt! Love your colors! I’ve got to put this on my bucket list for sure.
Wow! I love how it turned out and I really like that you did not cut down the squares. I think I have some charm packets that need to go into this quilt. Thanks for sharing.
I really like this,too..great way to get at those small scraps.LOL.
Count me among those who love it. In fact, the other day I was looking at some fabric and found myself saying, “This would be great for that Split Square quilt on Jo’s blog.” So, um, yeah, I’ll be making one.
Looks great! I laughed out loud though, because I’m finishing up a runner that I’m going to use as a wall hanging. It’s only 33 blocks! And, I don’t run a child care facility or a blog! Thanks for the inspiration! I’m going to do a bigger version after the new year. It won’t be as big as yours though.
i love it jo! keep up the great work. i asked you a question a few days ago (in the comment section) and i havent heard back ,
Love Love Love the colors!
I can see why you love it. I often think simple designs are the best. This colour combination is lovely, most unusual.
Pretty quilt. It appears to be woven. I love the colors.
WOW !! I am also doing this as a “quilt” as not a “table topper”, but in blues Love yours
LOVE the colors in the Split Square quilt! I’m sure we all have a room we stash stuff in….I call mine The Blue Room.
Love it, especially the colors. I can see one of these happening this winter.
I absolutely am going to do this one. It’s stunning!
I really love this too. I’m going back to your post on what you did differently from the original directions. I’m all for easier and quicker!
Cant find the measurements where you changed sizes so that it would be a 5 inch finished block
You need two 2 1/2″ x 5 inch and one 1″ x 5 inch to make a block.
