Finish It Up Friday ~ Simply Style 4 Patch

I finished my Simply Style 4 Patch quilt this week.
The prints all came from this layer cake given to me by Daughter #1. The quilt finished at 56 by 72 inches. I used a pantograph called Yodel to quilt this with Glide thread and Legacy 80/20 batting.

The backing is a new Ralph Lauren sheet. I love the colors and have had great success using sheets for quilt backs. However, this one was a bit too tightly woven and cased some tension headaches!

I have one 4 patch turned the wrong way! Can you see it? I really love simple patterns and this one really allows the beautiful fabric to shine.

Thanks for stopping by!

    That’s one sweet quilt, and the fabric really pops in that setting. It was hard to find your wayward 4-patch – of course, I started at the top…. 🙂

    What a lovely quilt, and the backing is really nice. I had a little trouble finding the wayward block (might be because I haven’t had my morning coffee yet), but I think it adds a bit of whimsy.

  3. Val W says:

    I love this one. It looks vintage and modern at the same time.

  4. This is a wonderful finish Katy, and the backing is the perfect print. I always forget about using sheets for backing. I found the block but only because you mentioned it…..stop that! 🙂 I agree with Piecefulwendy – it adds an element of fun.

  5. Paige says:

    It took me awhile, but I found it! Beautiful finish! I love all the colors with the gray and the quilting design is perfect!

  6. This is beautiful and I love those Simply Style fabrics! I had to search 3 times before I found the 4-patch you mentioned…so I don’t think anyone else will see it unless you point it out 😉

  7. Connie Wegner says:

    This is beautiful. Love the fabric and choice of quilting. The “mistake” is not easy to find and is just your humble spot. Wonderful as always.

    Lovely quilt. Found the block that is backwards. It’s funny cause when I do this I see it everytime I look at that quilt , but no one else can find it. When I look at mine it makes me relax and know that nothing is perfect and quilting is for fun. Have a great weekend.

  9. Alycia says:

    I love that!!! What a great color ful quilt. The backing is pretty too – sorry it caused problems. And he is not going the wrong way – that is just an independent block – ha ha!

  10. Cécile says:

    I quite simply love it !

  11. Jayne says:

    Such a great finish! Try as we might, sometimes details get away from us. It took me forever to find it…I was going cross eyed!

  12. I really love where the darker blue charms fell and how they pop out!!

  13. Louise says:

    I agree with Val W…simple but lovely to look at! The quilting design is perfect for it. Great quilt.

    A fantastic quilt, Katy!! It’s a simple pattern that looks more complex than it really is.I simply MUST make one! By the way, it took me a long time to find the wayward 4 patch. 🙂

  15. Great finish! I really like the backing fabric. Sometimes those sheets are difficult to quilt. You never know until you get started on them.

  16. Sandra B says:

    Great finish! Like a couple of other commenters mentioned, I never think to use a sheet for the backing…will have to keep that in mind….the sheet you chose is perfect for this quilt!
    I did find that wayward block, but not without a lot of searching! I think it adds a bit of charm to the quilt….
    Again….great finish!!

  17. Hey, if only one is turned the wrong way, or even 10, you did a fantastic job! Pointing out your errors is not required!

  18. Great quilt, independant block or not 🙂

  19. Mari says:

    Lovely! I’m always so jealous of your quilting. It’s always so flat and perfect. Well, it looks perfect to me, anyway!

  20. Jannette B says:

    I LOVE this quilt!!! You turned that one 9-patch block around to be your “humility” block, right?(apparently Amish women make one deliberate mistake in every quilt, because only God is perfect!)

  21. Barb C says:

    I really like this quilt!! What size are the squares for the four patches?

  22. This is so pretty! I have a sheet similar to the one you used that I am holding on to for use as a backing. I love the stripes!

  23. Joanie says:

    Love your quilt and the quilting. The colors are so wonderful. If I hadn’t read one of the comments above I wouldn’t have found the turned around 4 block. I have had many of those didn’t see faux pas until well after he quilt had been finished.

  24. Karen says:

    Bottom row, next to the Blue square. Took awhile but I found it. Otherwise it is beautiful and you can’t find the error unless you look hard!
