The weather outside was frightful

So what was a girl to do??

Why, start a new quilt of course!

I’ve not been able to figure out what to do with this fabric:

Quite frankly, I’ve been scared to cut into it.

Last night, though, I had an epiphany — I discovered that one of the quilts for the Machine Quilter’s Showcase Bread and Butter Category was the Four Patch Stacked Posie.  And as soon as I discovered that fact, I KNEW exactly which fabric I wanted to try.

Keep in mind that I don’t actually own the pattern (yet), I’m just making this up on my own:


Voila: I have 38 blocks done and a bunch more cut, waiting to be sewn.

This could be addictive!

(I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to set them, they were just sitting on the floor posing for their picture in this configuration…)

The irony is that I had actually intended to look for a more complicated quilt project to start — everything I do lately seems to be super-simple get it pieced as quick as possible kind of stuff.  My plan was to find something I could sink my teeth into, and look where I ended up???

A four patch, of all things.

But don’t worry.  I think I know what my complicated project is going to be, too.  More on that later.


p.s.  No, I don’t really NEED new projects.  I’ve got itchy fingers.  Or something like that.  The new blocks were a reward for getting the bindings sewn on my 2 double 9 patch quilts…
