Sheri's Scrappy Squares

Sheri's Scrappy Squares started out as a guild exchange of 3" squares.  There are many of these that were completed at the North Star Quilt Guild in Flin Flon, but everyone's choice of background and border fabric really changes the look.

Sheri's instructions to me were "anything goes" and P.S. " I hate feathers."  The first thing I noticed when taking a closer look at the top, was the subtle white on white flower print on the background fabric (it did not come out in the photos), so I had my inspiration.

I decided on continuous curves in the colored squares and triangles in a brown thread. 

The white areas got a flower motif, a scrolling meander, and a border treatment that combined the two.

Sherri sent a beige flannel backing so you can really see the quilting on the back.  Sometimes simple is best.
