4-Patch Exchange

July 12, 2015

I had misplaced my bag of 4-patches. I knew they were around somewhere! I found them in the corner of the bedroom on the MAN side of the room buried under a sleep apnea machine and supplies (which never gets used – and should!!!!!) I got to playing this morning immediately with a layout. The quilt is supposed to be finished for a quilt shop show/display in November.IMG_3040

I quickly went into layout mode this morning. I was thinking if I made the alternate block white I could use up some of the white fabrics I have. I don’t think there is enough contrast. I think I will make a trip to the quilt store and get some gray fabric for a ¬†layout like Deb Bear’s inspiration quilt I fell in love with the moment I laid eyes on it. ¬†Deb blogged about her quilt here.

I drafted the butterfly block and made a few blocks. A few weeks later I was making another butterfly block and I realized I missed putting the light fabric in the bottom corners.

6 hours of dilly dallying

On April 15th I had completed my set of 4 patches and was anxious for the big exchange.

A proud moment
