Double 4-Patch in Progress
I did decide to take a little break from my red strings quilts and work on this double four patch. It was a hard decision to make, because I just itch to get them finished.
This quilt was a request from some of the women at church. They wanted a quilt to tie for one of the women in our ward. I said that as long as she would like a floral, I would be happy to donate all the fabric. They thought she would love it, so I pieced this quilt.
All it needs is borders. Here I am using my design floor to decide on an inner border. I will go with the light pink, but use the teal for the binding. The teal solid is also the backing. I better stop procrastinating and just DO the borders. Borders are my least favorite part of all quilting. But like my friend Deb says, "It is just eight long seams."
They are hoping to tie this at an activity next Tuesday, but understand if I can't finish it in time. I think I will be able to get it ready by then. :o)
I just thought I would add... a design wall works a lot better with my two-year old, Monkey, than a design floor. He thinks it is so much fun to run across my project if it is on the floor. But if he knocks something off the wall he says, "Uh oh. Sowee, Mom." Then he hands me the piece that fell. Go figure.
P.S. I am linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation.
