I added three more rows to my double Four Patch top, which means 30 blocks. To complete it I need another 20 blocks... I think I rather have a break from this and start a new baby quilt for my three months old grandson : first priority, isn't it? As I showed in this post, my daughter chose various shades of grey for this quilt and I suppose it will be a pleasure for me to use soft neutral hues, after all those colorful fabrics lately... relaxing!

  1. I like the four patch design you are working on. I am drawn to your fabric choices. Also, I wonder what kind of sewing machine you are using.

  2. I just love the simplicity of the four patch. Such wonderful fabrics you are using in this, the saturated warm colors will make this a cozy quilt. I also love the photo of your sewing machine's foot. It looks as if it has a been a good friend to you and has that same sort of simplicity. Wonderful!

  8. I love your Double 4 patch block. What are the sizes of your blocks? Do you have the instructions? I like it because they are tiny.

  10. Interesting to see all those seams pressed open - I imagine it reduces the bulk? This quilt is on my to-do list - I've admired it for years - and since 4-patches seem to be all the rage right now I'd love to get started! Beautiful!

  11. Glad you have gotten so much done on this pattern--have always loved it. Your colors are fantastic. Hope you keep up with it, it will be gorgeous!! The colors your daughter picked out have been very popular. My daughter-n-law used grey and yellow. It has a very relaxed feeling to it. Have fun

  12. Je comprends que tu aies envie de varier les plaisirs. Ton quilt va vraiment être superbe. Ta machine à coudre est-elle une machine professionnelle? Sa robustesse, son intégration dans la table et le mètre intégré à la table y font penser. Bon début de quilt doux.

  20. I love seeing your progress on this quilt. But I do have to admit.... Making a baby quilt for your new grandson does sound rather tempting!
