Still playing with my four patches. The fabulous Sally T left a comment on my last four-patch post that I really took to heart. She said she was disappointed to find that what looked like an orange double four-patch block was actually pink instead.
Orange... Of course!
One orange block, coming right up!
And I set the two blocks on a handy hunk of purple, along with a few 1.5" squares. You know, just for grins.
Maybe another block? I could make a table runner...
So another pink block appeared. And then, because one good orange deserves another -
Now I had four blocks made.
Let the games begin!
Easy is as easy does - I just set them down next to each other.
Maybe a narrow sashing? That handy hunk of purple was still right there.
Maybe a 2" sashing instead of a 1" one?
Four-patches for cornerstones?
Or maybe a turquoise hunk?
Maybe more blocks? These double four-patch blocks will finish at eleven inches, so I've got a possible table topper at this point, or a wall quilt. Do I want to keep going?
The dithering is always the best part... Maybe I should do one of each?
Oh, and that stack of squirrels I mentioned in the title? Martingale had a book sale. I'm always a sucker for a good sale. Some are for me, and some might go for Christmas gifts, if I can manage to pry them out of my own hands.
At least one of those books is the kind where I want to make every single one of the quilts.
I may need to buy a day-stretcher.
Linking with Quilting is more fun than Housework for Cynthia's Oh Scrap! party. Come see all the goodies!
