4 Patches become 16
I have posted in the past about my initial approach of strips of 12 similar or identical blocks - and that stripe layout was used in the first few quilts that were donated.
Now I am working with groups of 4 - turning them into 16 patches. I now have a design wall, so I can toss the blocks up there as I make them and ponder the possibilities of layout into the final quilt. Each one will take 6x7 of these 16 patches, and I think the finished result will work nicely! I have a bunch paired up and ready to chain piece - one of the nice things about being home for Thanksgiving and not having to travel is having a little extra bit of sewing time over the weekend.
This year I am thankful for ALL OF YOU and the support you have given me through this project.
