Design Wall Monday

I'm playing with the 4 Patch Posie by HD Designs pattern. I used a whole yard of the thrift store Rio Bears (at the bargain basement price of 50 cents, too!) I found while on vacation. Unfortunately, the repeat was only a little over 8 inches so I used the whole yard to make all 18 blocks. I think I could have gotten 2 more blocks if I hadn't mis-cut the first set! Oh well~live and learn! and for only 50 cents!
It should finish to about 36 x 36~a perfect size for the local hospital neo-natal unit.

Thanks to Linda and Norma who were cutting and sewing a 4 Patch Posie for Pam while at retreat so I could *see* first hand the *methodology*! :)Posted by Picasa

How wonderful, Pat! You got a chance to try the 4 Patch Posie pattern! I love your little quilt. I can see that there will be more 4PP in your future! LOL

Oh man, I knew Ms. Norma would give you kudo's for jumping on the 4PP wagon! whoo hoo! fun to do this in a kid print. Mine?....still at the stage you last saw it. Baseball is almost over so I will be getting into MCM more and my 4PP is near the top of my 'to-do' list.

Now those turned out really cute, Pat! Not too much to loose with such a bargain on the fabric. The sashing and cornerstone choices work well with the bear blocks too.

I'm sure it'll be a very appreciative mommy, and a very lucky baby to receive this beautiful quilt ! Great job.

Wasn't it so fun to see how each block would turn out? Really pretty colors! I started a 4PP long time ago, it lives in the ufo pile now!
