Adventures of the 'Liberated' Four Patch kind and Color my World, Please.

Tools, components, templates.

New small quilt experiment, 'liberated.'

I'm using great ideas from Mary and Connie's book, 'Sew Charming.'


Happy Weekend from New Hampshire!

I'm reading and enjoying, 'Sew Charming, Scrappy Quilts from 5" Squares' by Connie Tesene and Mary Etherington. They've got so many fun small quilt ideas in this book!

My small quilt experiment is a spin from their "Framed Double Four Patch" on Page 31. My four patches are a little different. I can never exactly copy anything, I always say to myself, 'I bet I could do it this way,' and off I go. And of course I always get 'shocking' with the color.

Hope you're having adventures in your creative world too. I'll be by to enjoy what's going on !

      'Sew Charming' does have lots of good ideas for small quilts, I got mine on Amazon.

  4. I don't think your colour choices are shocking at all - inspiring is a much better word!

  5. I like how you get wild with colour! Especially orange - you always use orange so well.
