Four Patch Inspiration


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

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.
