Quilt News from the valley!
Where we have rain off and on and temperatures are a few degrees warmer. And spring is coming, every morning the sun comes up a bit earlier. Day Light Savings switch soon...
Last week I had time for my 4" Four Square blocks. I found them after storing them away because no inspiration was forthcoming as to what needed to be done with them. Then I came across Beth Shibley's You Tube tutorial on Four Ways to Finish Four Patch Blocks, the light came on, simple yet profound. One of her suggestions is to use a four patch in a square. Great idea and it will use up a lot of scraps and odds and ends.
For my Four Patch in a Square project I'm using some of my Tim Holtz fabric stash, Horticulture and From Camden, two of my favorites, from his Eclectic Elements/Foundations collection.
My glass drying towel with Sashiko and hand embroidery is finished and being used, practical is the word!
And that quilt friends is the news, a finish and a start.
Does spring inspire you to new projects?
I love your Sashiki projects. Isn’t it nice to have useful and beautiful things around us for our daily chores?
For your four pieces in a square, you have used such great colors - they make the squares look like a heart!
Spring has sprung in Japan with higher than usual temperatures.
All the best
Especially love your glass drying towel. So pretty and practical.
Four patch in a square is a fabulous idea. I have all the trimmings from the backs of about 10 quilts sitting on my sewing table waiting for some inspiration Nothing goes together. I wonder if this four patch idea would work to use these up.
