Mom's 4-patch finally loaded


The practice muslin from my bee meeting is finally off the machine. Saturday I did spend some more time practicing some freehand designs and then removed the muslin.

The plan was to load and start Mom's 4 patch top on Sunday after Keith left for California but I was in a lazy mood and decided to read instead.

Finally, this afternoon I loaded and started quilting Mom's top. I love this quilt. It's a larger scrappy version of a 4 patch quilt in the book 40 Fabulous Quick Cut Quilts. I have strips cut out in greens to make myself a king size version but haven't started piecing mine yet.

I like that! But then, I like almost all greens. :)

What sort of quilting pattern are you going to use on it?

The 4-patch quilt looks very good. I'm looking forward to see the full quilt :-)

Oh Mary! I am not usually attracted to green quilts but I am in love with that one! You have such a talent for coordinating fabrics!

I love this quilt top. The greens are so soothing. I am curious how you will quilt this one. Please share a picture once you are done.

Oooh, I love this quilt. Great job. You've done a super job choosing just the best greens to put into a quilt. I would never have thought about making an all green quilt, but I am thinking about it now.
