4-Patch Stacked Posies - Completed Flimsy

This is my 4-Patch Stacked Posies top completed to the flimsy stage. This is a small piece--44 inches square.


The photos were taken inside because it is raining so the colours are not exactly true to the original.

This top only used three fabrics:

1. A floral fabric - used for the 4-patches and border

2. Accent fabric - burgundy in my quilt - used for the narrow border around the 4-patches, corner stones, and narrow inner border

3. Sashing fabric - green in my quilt

Cutting details:

- My fabric had a 13 1/4" repeat and my squares used for the 4-patch blocks were cut 3 1/4" square.

- The narrow border that frames the 4-patches was cut 1" wide and finished at 1/2".

- The corner stones are cut 1 1/2" square and finish 1" square.

- The sashing is cut 1 1/2" wide and finishes at 1" wide.

- The border is cut 6 " wide and finishes at 5 1/2" wide.

  3. What a lovely quilt. Only three fabrics is hard for me to do but I might give it a try if it can be done this beautifully. Terry

  5. Norma, it looks fantastic! Lovely table topper when it is all quilted up because it looks pretty terrific right now. I like that burgundy contrast for both the narrow sashing and the cornerstones.

    Now if I can just find the proper color for my attempt to make one of these. I am thinking I might have to consult with the Moda Marble color card as see what comes close--maybe a celery colored with some yellow undertones?? I've got more blocks to do now that I found that extra yard at the quilt shop though aiming more for a throw of some size. I know your blocks finished bigger than mine to start with. What fun to play along with you!

  6. This is beautiful! Is this different than a stack and whack quilt?

  9. That turned out really pretty--good choice of fabric. That pattern is on my list to do this fall. I've admired it ever since I first saw it. And what a nice way to reward yourself for being good! :)

  14. Very pretty, Norma. You've been a busy girl. I admire the one customer who has those table runners ready to give as gifts. I used to be like that -- have all my Christmas shopping done by August but not anymore. I quit thinking ahead.

  15. What a stunning top and it looks so easy to do up, but I'm sure that you have to be a bit precise on the cutting and lining up of your strips.

  16. In the photo it's fooling to the eye, it appears to be large.

  17. I just bought this pattern and fabric and have been trying to figure out the directions - they are somewhat confusing. Your quilt is beautiful and now I can't wait to start mine!
