I am still working away on my Disappearing Four Patch Country quilt...done most of the cutting, finally worked out the pressing of the seams and starting to produce the units in assembly line style.
At the same time I had a bit of a look through my stash...amazing what is in there. Some years ago I bought a lot of solid/tone-on-tone type fabric of different colours. I think the idea was to make a type of star quilt that would have a graduation of colour across the quilt top. Well, that idea was left behind and the fabric has just been sitting there. So, I trialled a few different things, but in the end decided to keep it simple otherwise I am running the risk to loose momentum on my enthusiasm to make a dent in that stash.
This is the first instalment of what I came up with. Simple, very colourful and easy to construct. That's what I am into at the moment...strip piecing and assembly-line construction. Set together with another block in an interesting layout, this makes for a nice children's quilt.
What do you think? As you can see I collected these very bright primary colours. I have meters of some of that and it just needs to be used up. Not sure what to call this block other than Four Patch. Hmm...maybe too simple.
I will make a few more of these blocks together with an alternate block and have a bit of a look at my idea.
It's Monday, so I am linking up to Anything Goes Linky Party by Stitch by Stitch.
