I am still trying to believe it is 2015! But it is not hard to believe it is winter. Schools here are closed today. It is extremely cold, windy, and the snow is blowing. I plan to sew since I don’t have to work today. But my sewing will likely be in the form of curtains for Daughter #1. Curtains can change a room so much, they are so worth the work!
The Small Quit Talk group challenge for the month is to make something using a Disappearing 4 Patch block. A nice tutorial for this can be found on Kathy Tracy’s bog here.
Here is the block.
The block finished at 4 inches. I chose to make just 4 blocks in a color combination I have noticed lately in some antique quilts.
Someone on Instagram said I should put it on point. I wish I had as I think it looks better that way, but it was too late, I had already started quilting it. (BTW, you can find me on IG as katyquilts).
Here it is before washing.
I used mono-poly thread for the quilting. The color is more true in the before washing picture. I intend to hang a bunch of the quits that I have made in these group challenges in my stairwell heading to the sewing room. I need to paint first though. Sigh…..I hate painting! Anyway, when I get to that point, I think I will hang this one on point.
