I want to show you what I did with your go 4 it idea from last spring.
Each block has 9 four-patches that finish at 2". And I used some extra four patches to make this on point quilt a little wider. It will finish at 100 x 80.
I was traveling away from a machine part of the year so many four patches were hand pieced. After I had plenty done I used the 1.5" squares to hand make the cornerstones. Thanks for the inspiration and pushing me off of the "4-patch cliff"!
I am taking my time with Allietare-I stitched the HSTs as leader/enders while assembling this quilt.
I hope you have awesome holidays!Jean Bissell, Salem ORI love it, Jean!! Great use of 4 patches!
As you know, 4 patches are MY favorite block unit, so guess what I'm working on tonight?
Yep! MORE scrappy 4 patches!
I've pulled out my blue 1950s Morse for this project. I haven't sewn on this machine in a while and this seemed like a good task for it. Besides, I have a penchant for blue machines and this one is top notch!
Made in Japan!
Those Japanese import machines from the 1950s and 1960s are just so great, and who can resist a paint job like this? Not me!
The stack of 1 1/2'' strips
I want as much variety as possible, just scrappy light/dark so tonight I am just pairing and sewing strip sets. The cutting and stitching of the twosies will happen at another time.
