Disappearing Four Patch Quilt finished

Wow...this has felt like the longest time completing this quilt. But, it is finally done and is looking quite nice.

The quilt comes to approximately 62in x 70in



This was a fun quilt to make as it could be chain-stitched in assembly line manner and ultimately came together quite quickly. Unfortunately, I was in such a hurry that I did my quilt-in-the-ditch sewing with an incorrect bobbin thread and Monofilament on top which caused some major pulling of the fabric. Once I realised I had to undo a fair bit and hence, it has taken me an extraordinary long time to complete this one.

What's next...well, had to give my machine in for a service as it is making an alarming clunking noise again when I am FMQ. Will have a bit of a break and then start on another adventure...have this new design in my head which needs to still be tweaked here and there...

Linking up to Lorna's Bee Social Linky Party over at Sew Fresh Quilts and WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced

Until next time

  6. I have not made a D4P yet.... I have heard of people having issues with getting the blocks to turn out right, has kind of made me shy away.... BUT your quilt is quite inspiring and I might just bite the bullet and just do it!! :)

  12. Great finish I really enjoy all the disappearing blocks. I have been working on the disappearing Pinwheel. It always amazes me how the blocks change. Your color choices are fantastic.
