Found that Sewing Room...SHRR, 4 Patch Posie



I found my sewing room again!  And I finally finished the triangles for the Stay at Home Round Robin.  (I wouldn't blame Sunny if she thought I had quit on her - it took me so long to get to this point!)  I had so much trouble with this - first I cut my triangles too big, then too small, then bought more fabric - then decided to cut down the center.  Whew!!  You would think this was hard but it's not.  It's just one of those times when the brain is not working right.  When I completed it I remember the triangles should only be 3 inches!  Yikes!!  What's wrong with me??  Thank goodness Sunny's not the quilt police! 


Okay - on to the next project.  After Thanksgiving and all that traveling and yummy food, I just wanted to do simple sewing.  


I pulled out my 4 patch posies quilt.  




 Don't you just love this fabric?  For this I had to find the repeat (in this case, 12 inches) then cut 4 strips, pin through all 4 pieces in exactly the same spot to get them lined up exact and keep them steady.  Then cut 3 1/2 inch squares.  


It didn't take long to get a nice little pile of 4 patches. 




Each 4 patch is completely different.  It's fun to see the different designs.  



Some are more spectacular than others - but all are pretty neat.


And all so fun and simple to make.  I love them!




I can't wait to get back to making more of these!


Merry Christmas, 
Linda

  2. Love the four patch posies. What a great idea. Your SAHR is looking good. The three inches was merely a guideline, not an unbreakable law. LOL! I'm not coming out to measure it.
