Who knew that yesterday when I posted about my
disappearing four patch someone else was getting ready
to post about hers????
Sara took the humble D4P to greater heights!!!
I saw her post this morning and KNEW I had to try it out!
Here's my rendition of a wonky D4patch:
I made two matching 4 patches (using 6" squares again),
laid them on top of each other
making sure opposite squares were on top of each other.
Then I did some cutting.
4 lines going this way and that!!
I laid out two blocks.
This is just like a puzzle!!!!
I did some sewing.
I also did some ripping.
Before I knew it I had 16 blocks!!!!
Thank you Sara for your inspiration!
Thank you Blogland for sewing friends!
Thank you stripes for being so energetic today!!!
That is SO cool! As soon as I finish up the current WIP, I'm gonna try this...ReplyDelete

Isn't it so true that we are all inspired by one another. Always getting good ideas from other quilters!

Oh wow, both of your Disappearing 4-Patch projects are wonderful! I love that you and Sara were playing off each other. And I LOVE the wonky! What fun! Now I have to go try one too, just because.ReplyDelete
Great quilt! Love the wonky cuts and the stripes.ReplyDelete
Fantastic! I love when an 'ordinary' block turns out extraordinary.ReplyDelete

The stripes look fabulous with your wonky block.ReplyDelete

How wonderfully wonky!ReplyDelete
Excellent idea - and the stripes work so well!ReplyDelete
You start with 6" squares but after you cut them and sew them and square them up- what size are they? I made one and it's not square but rectangle.ReplyDelete
LindieLee: You're comment is set to no-reply, so I will try to respond here. I squared my blocks up to 10" after cutting and sewing the D4patch together. Hope that helps. ;)ReplyDelete
I love this!!! One of these days I'm going to make one too! Thanks for sharing!!ReplyDelete
I have been making some awesome table runners with this pattern... I hope you don't mind that I pinned this tutorial on Pinterest for future reference.ReplyDelete
