Hello Friends! I hope you are well. I have another free pattern to share. My Movement in Squares, designed for Benartex’s Op Art Reflections fabric collection, is quite different from my usual style, but it actually reflects my love for structure and order.
As much as I love all things soft and feminine, my home decor style actually tends toward the masculine. I love the cottage, vintage and shabby chic look, but for some strange reason, I can’t replicate that look in my decorating style. Everything in my displays has to exhibit some kind of symmetry and order – as you can see below. A beloved cousin even told me “lighten up” once… ha!
See what I mean? In any case, you will be surprised to find that the linkage effect in Movement in Squares is not that hard to achieve. The quilt top is quite easily constructed in sections.
My absolute favorite part about this quilt is the background fabric used. I was experimenting using colors other than white or gray as background fabric, and Benartex has this beautiful blush sage swatch that just works perfectly! Click here to view the fabrics in the Blush range.

I hope Movement in Squares, though a bit different, gives you some fresh quilting ideas. Thanks for stopping by! Hugs to you all!
