I've been playing for ME this weekend! This is called 4-Patch Hopscotch (©2008,yada yada yada!)
Not for the book, not for a customer, not for a workshop or trunkshow.....This was for ME!
On the quiltvillechat list at yahoogroups we are having a June UFO challenge. This "KIND OF" goes along with that, since these 4 patches are leader/enders that have been sitting around for a while. I used a bunch of them up in the Orange Crush quilt, but I wanted to play with them more.
I made the blocks first...using up more 2" strips. Those bins are overflowing to the point of not being able to shut them, so I wanted to see if I could make some headspace!
I also used more 2" strips and squares in the strippy border...fun!
I've pieced a back...browns that I wanted to use up. One is a batik with brown palm trees....palms are the South Carolina state tree. The other piece has forest-y type ferns on it, and the two look good together.
I a fun time meeting the ladies from the Piedmont Quilters Guild of Greensboro, NC. Greensboro is about 1/2 hour drive from me, and a beautiful city. I'm close to Winston Salem, and I never seem to need to head in the other direction to get to Greensboro unless I'm passing through while on the road. It was nice to meet so many great and welcoming quilters there! We had Greek food for dinner before the meeting. Mmmmmmm!! Mousaka and Greek Salad!
Friday was our Crumbs Quilt workshop, and what a fun mess me made!
Saturday I am headed to Woodbridge Virginia for a Sunday afternoon Boxy Stars class. I'd love to meet you if you are in the Woodbridge, VA area.
