Yesterday I finished my top. As you see, it was quickly done and I really enjoyed playing with my floral fabrics. I find the most pleasant thing to work on simple patterns, like this Four Patch, to allow myself to concentrate on the association of prints and colors, and thus to achieve quickly a top, which is quite rewarding. As a matter of fact, what took the most time in this process was the choice and layout of my squares. 

For my next quilt, I think of trying a more free exercise : a sort of random layout of my blocks. I know that it seems easy at first sight, but for me this kind of freedom appears to be one of the most difficult things in general, not only for quilting... I have a tendency to always want to arrange and match things, to create harmony. Rather than a tendency, I must admit that it can sometimes become an obsession!

  11. J'imagine le casse-tête jubilatoire (oui, oui, ça va ensemble, tu es d'accord?) pour arranger les tissus! Tonquilt fait du bien en ce début de printemps. Bon courage pour la liberté :-) Je comprends tout à fait ton sentiment!

  16. Christine, I gasped when I opened your blog just now. Your Liberty four patch is beautiful! You picked the perfect color for your solid squares and the pattern of the florals shows off each so wonderfully. Clearly, your "obsession with arranging things neatly yields wonderful results! LOL
    I have a charm pack of Regent Street Lawns and am thinking this type of simple arrangement is the best way to use them!

  19. Your four patch quilts are a favourite of mine... and this one is no exception! Love the softness of those prints and pretty solid you chose for the alternate blocks. A really sweet little quilt top!
