Several weeks ago some of the gals in my local quilt group and I explored the 4 patch stacked posie technique. I didn't get pictures at the time as I was helping some get started on the cutting procedure, the concept of stacking the fabrics, etc mainly. Once these are cut then it is just a matter of finding a pleasing layout. I did get 21 blocks made that day and have 21 more ready to stitch up possibly at our next meeting.
Janet was using a gorgeous fall print, Marilyn went off without her foot pedal or power cord but she had a country floral and has since done some stitching. Lois chose a very feminine piece with a strand of pearls and ribbons running through it. Valera stitched up some wonderful blocks at home with tans, greens and a rusty brown shade that she showed me yesterday. Of course, no pictures. I'll get them as they finish up their tops. I am pretty sure that Jane, Aline and Donna were all working on their own projects that day.
Then there are mine which I CAN share since I finally remembered to take some pictures. My lefthanded quilter friend is waiting to see some pictures as she too is working on her own version right, posting them as a Wordless Wednesday post. Actually that might be what reminded me that I was supposed to post my blocks, LOL.
I don't know that there will be a whole lot of variety in the blocks since the fabric is all pretty similar in the motifs. It should make a fairly girlie quilt for donation at some point. I have my own quilt that has been waiting to be quilt for some time---uh, clear back in April 2009 and last shown HERE. Maybe in the new year it will cease to be just a flimsy I move around in the closet?
Tomorrow will be my feature day on "For The Boys" blog hop so I hope you will consider dropping by to see what I have made. I was out taking some pictures yesterday morning so will be writing up my accompanying post next and schedule it to go live at the appointed time.
And sew it goes---------
