This is a new project that I started with Pauline and Susan who came over sew recently. It's called "Four Patch Posie".
This is a four patch posie project. It is similar to a stack and whack, except it uses only four squares of fabric.
Here is one that I made a couple of years ago and gave as a baby gift.
You can see the original fabric on the borders, but in this case it's difficult to see because it all looks the same.
The way this is done is you layer 4 repeats of a pattern, it's best to have at least a 12" repeat, wider is better. You stack them up and match the pattern and cut 3 1/2" squares through all layers.
Each stack can be assembled 4 different ways by turning the squares. Choosing the block design is the funnest part.
Here is Pauline's, she is using a panel. I love how cheerful and graphic it is.
This is Susan, her print has a garden theme. I quite like it, but Susan wasn't thrilled and is going to do something radical and fantastic with hers.
Here is mine. My print has elephants and Shiva's on it. I have big plans that will include crystals and borders.
Here is another setting that I auditioned.
Which do you think works best?
Here is a baby quilt that Susan made for her a new niece that is on her way. It is made of half square triangles. So cute, Susan!
And finally, here are views of Pauline's beautiful finished Bali bag.
Have a great week everyone - I'm off to the mid-west to look at Colleges, just have to get together some applique' to take with me!
