I call this one, “Camp Four-Patch Posey”. It was a quick and easy quilt to make. The floral fabric was from my stash and has been there probably 10 years. I found it on sale at a quilt shop in West Monroe, LA and bought all that remained on the bolt (about 8-9 yards, I think) because…
I actually bought that fabric to make a shower curtain for the house in Arkansas. The best laid plans… That project never got done. Now that we have moved and these colors don’t exactly go with this house, I decided it would make a great Four-Patch Posey. I’m not crazy-in-love with it but it will do well for my bed at the camp. The print was a little too open to get great, swirling results from the 4-patches. Some blocks are better than others.
The quilting pattern is “Willowy Weeds”. I think it imitates the vines on the print. Of course you can see it better on the back.
YES!!! ONE UFO done!!!
NOW… I am off to SIL Retreat with Mary Anne. Our other SIL, Debbie, won’t be able to make it this time, but we do have a surprise guest to hold her spot.
The first thing I will do when I walk in the door? Put my new quilt on my bed!
What am I working on? Jeremy’s quilt! I have all the blocks made. I need 348 half-square triangles for the sashing. I now have 230 so I am making good progress. I hope to have the body of the quilt all together by Saturday evening, then I will only need to add outer borders.
IF When I finish this one I will have 2 more UFOs off my list (Making the quilt counts as #1; quilting and binding it count as #2.)
Tootle-loo, my friends! I’ll give you a FULL report of all our fun and shenanigans next week!
