Four Patch Inspiration

Last week I fell in love with a little quilt on Laundry Basket Quilts' Instagram feed.

saved from @laundrybasketquilts on Instagram

I didn't intend to reproduce it right away but I happened to notice a pan of four patches I've been making for another project.

Surely, I wouldn't set myself back too much if I pilfered 24 of them from the pile.  And, this blue just happened to be right on the cutting table.

It's there because I used it in my tantalizing triangles (a.k.a., Panama Pyramids) which are not on the cutting table but residing on my stool for now.

And, this red seemed perfect for the borders and it was in a pile of fabrics I bought (last year) that is waiting patiently to be filed away in the stash.  I'm not showing the pile of fabric - too embarrassing.

So, this little quilt came together in about 90 minutes.

Now, back to hand sewing triangles and squares.  My hand stitched postage stamps are adding up rather nicely.

And I have a little collection of triangle block kits ready to stitch.


  1. And that's how many a quilt was born! Love it.

  2. Excellent reproduction of that little quilt. I am trying not to get sucked into that vortex!! : )
    Oh, you are more patient than I to accomplish all of that hand stitching. Great projects!

  3. scrummy little bits of eye candy!

  4. That's a very great repro little quilt ! And I love your Panama triangles ...very popular !

  5. I noticed that little quilt too. Love how you got it together so quickly. I love hearing about the piles other Quilter's have, but then how those piles come in so handy.

  6. Very good! Fun to just stop and make it without any planning! YEA

  7. Oh what fun. 90 Minutes of pure pleasure. I love it!

  8. Saw that ig post too, loved it, your version is great, I can imagine you were inspired. Great pyramids too, am making them as well, but a bit slow going due to other projects I had planned. Enjoy all your projects!

  9. I came across your blog...Beautiful quilts!! I am helping my aunt sell her feed sack collection...Any interest? She has deconstructed sacks from he 20's and 30's. She is a "retiring" quilter and would love to see them go to a fellow quilters home. I have pictures...$12 each OR $2200 for the lot (approx 228).
