My way. 4 patch.

I made enough 4 patch blocks to make two quilts. The second one needed to be mine. I made the first one to look like the one in the book. Why do that?

Awhile ago I bought some fabric with roses on it that I was in love with but was afraid to use. I decided it was time.

Here is how it came out -



What do you think? Does the floral overpower the blocks? Is that a bad thing (if it does)? 

For me, the blend is perfect. I am dreaming about the bed on the porch of my childhood camp. It was iron and sometimes had a hornets nest somewhere inside. That is the truth! 

But, it was on a screen porch near the lake. I loved it there. And, this quilt is now part of the memory even though it never was. 

Here is the first quilt.

  1. I love the large rose floral! I think you've made yet another fabulous quilt! It's different than the first one, but it sings it's own song. Both are beautiful. One is Celine Dion, the other is Lady Gaga.

  3. I love the roses on the 4 patch. Your quilts are different and I love them. So fresh to look at. I mean this sincerely. Not the same SOS you usually see in new quilts.
