Four Patch Fun

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.


  1. I like the top flowery one. Not gay but have 5 sisters and a mother that use to quilt.

  2. Love the way this one is turning out. Black and white and grey are lovely and the fabrics on this are really singing. Can't wait to see the finish!

  3. Can't wait to see how it turns out. What a fun pattern.


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
