I found a wonderful fabric that I wanted to make something from. It turns out that my sister has a pattern that uses the exact same fabric so I am going to make a quilt from her pattern. It is a four patch, set on point with sashing between each row.
This is the focus fabric. It is black and white with a little silver highlights and has a 24 inch repeat. The repeats are lined up on top of each other and then I cut 4 1/2 inch strips, cut into 4 1/2 inch blocks.
Here are nine of the four-patches laid side by side. It probably would have been better if I had separated them for the picture but if you look close, you can see the different blocks. So far, I have made 40 blocks and am getting ready to add the sashing to them. I had so much fun playing with the positioning of the 4 blocks that make up the four patch. Once it is put together you cut diagonally twice, sewing the cut off piece back in a different position and the quilt is magically put on point.
I need to quilt a quick quilt for the shop tomorrow but hope to get the sashing on this one. I can't wait to see how it turns out.
