In April, (yes, I said April!) I will be doing a workshop for the larger of the 2 quilt groups I belong to. It’s titled “Disappearing 4-Patch with a Twist” and I will be using an idea gathered from here. Instead of using 4 different prints, as suggested, I will be simplifying it by using just 2. Hopefully, the participants will use colors that satisfy those needed for QOV. I hope to get the blocks on my design wall into a quilt before this week is finished. Using just the 2 colors is working pretty well, don’t you think??
I’m not sure why the color is a bit off in the first photo. The second is a bit more accurate.
There will be 8 more blocks made (I think) and then a border using the fabric on the bolt. The blocks finish at 17”, which is quite a nice size for this pattern and for a QOV/lap quilt. It is definitely a “slice and dice” technique that commands my full attention. You end up with 2 blocks (colors opposite one another) when the cutting/sewing is done. It’s really quite an interesting method once I got the ‘hang’ of it (did my share of “un-sewing” at the start!!). It feels good to get ahead on this future event!!!
