Today I am going to quilt! I have a day off from work so I am going to make sure I fit in something for me!
Last weekend, I was looking through my inspiration pictures that I have collected from the internet over the years and I came across a quilt that Lucy from Quilting With The Past had posted back in December. Lucy called her quilt, UFO number 5.
I am calling my version of this quilt, Double 4 Patch. (Not very creative I know, just descriptive of the block pattern.) I have decided to make my quilt from my box of pre-cut 3" squares. This means that my blocks finish 10" square. With 24 blocks and an outside 5" border, my quilt should finish about 63" x 88". If I keep to this size range I can make use of existing fabrics in my stash for the backing--a true stash buster.
This is a picture of some of the blocks that I have made already - they are being auditioned on the fabric that I intend to use for the sashings. The three fabrics to the left are the fabrics that I am considering for cornerstones - beige, yellow, and red. I am leaning towards the yellow.
