Design Wall Monday


 Not much on the design wall, but it is a start. I have more charm packs then I will ever be able to use of the Minick and Simpson 'American Primer' I have decided to start another top.  I saw a tutorial a week or two ago on a disappearing four patch and decided to see what it would look like.  I have made up the first two blocks and like them so I will continue.  It will not be done quickly but is anything I do done quickly?  I think that if I can take 15-30 minutes each day and make up a few blocks it will eventually be finished.

that sounds like a good plan-amazing what you can do in 15 minutes of focused sewing.

15 minutes here and 15 minutes there can add up to lots of sewing and quilting. Spend 15 minutes prep and then 15 sewing and soon it will be 30 minutes prep and 15 minutes sewing. Good luck!

It looks like you've got a good start

This is a disappearing four patch? I have seen the disappearing nine patch, but not this. I really like this one!

What a good idea for charm packs. I assume you need at least two of each fabric.

I LOVE that line and just discovered it recently. How lucky you are to have so much of it--I only have some of the Recess fabric, which I see you have in cream with green. Double four-patches look wonderful in these fabrics!

I have one of these projects on the go...I should look for it and finish it. The blocks were really fun to sew!

Isn't that a neat block? I saw the same tutorial and last month did a baby quilt top with them. Fortunatly the baby isn't due until Feb so I can wait until after Christmas to quilt it.
