Okay, the 4-patch challenge email has been setting on my desk for weeks now. I even had a copy of it in the quilt room. But I couldn’t make up my mind. I wanted to do something really, really simple. I see quilt projects in magazines hanging on walls, and lots of times they are such simple little projects. But because they’re finished in such a cute way – it looks fantastic. (one of those – Well I Could Do THAT! moments)
The little 4-patch units had been up on my design wall for several days – I had about three different layouts going. But finally it hit me – why not just do a basic little 4-patch quilt, do some big-stitch quilting on it by hand, and display it on one of those cute hangers that I’ve got in my quilt room?
So here’s where things stand …
I’ve got the small mini-quilt made of basic 4-patch units in Civil War repros and shirtings. And to the right you’ll see the hanger that I’m hoping to use.
