I really liked this one. Both of these used my hand dyes exclusively except for the back on the large one which used a gorgeous piece of fabric my sister gave me from Hoffman.
This is the aforementioned back!
I am back to doing baby quilt tops again as life is really a jumble now and I need something totally mindless to do -- which does challenge me a bit to try some different things with these simple simple blocks. I am addicted to four patches!! Have probably made close to 500 the past couple of weeks and haven't made a dent in my scrap bag!!
Another of the same!
I overachieved on cutting 4 1/2 inch colored squares and this was my first thought on a different arrangement. I didn't care for it.
Moved some around to make it a bit more random but you can see that there is a pretty controlled color palette in all these quilt tops.
Another one done but boring to do so won't probably do too many more like this.
I had seen a version of this on Pinterest and thought I would try my version. You will note I have two of the blocks going in the wrong direction! Funny you don't see that until you take pictures!! I always take pictures before finishing up a top (and even doing that have an occasional slip). I do like this arrangement a lot. I am starting to run out of white though (of the non-PFD variety) so may have to actually go buy a bolt when on super cheap sale at Joann's.
I have finished half of the putting together here. It should end up measuring about 35 x 35 before I put on some borders.
Some birds in my daughter's back yard for your perusal! This is a Yellow Bellied Sapsucker.
This is a beautiful Bluebird who posed a lot for us the other afternoon.
Her ever present cardinal in all his glory!
