Double Four Patch

Ok, here are all the rows sewn together. Now, I'm putting the four sections of the quilt together. One row is missing. Someone turned a block the wrong way. Hmmm, I need to talk to the staff here and make sure they check their work before I get into the sewing room in the mornings. (yeah, it was me)

I may still move a few strips around a bit. I don't like those two blues together there near the center. Of course, if I don't get this together today, I'll have to pack it up for a while tomorrow when Dear MIL comes over. I can't have her tiptoeing around this quilt in the middle of the living room. Now, mom....she lives here, so she's learned to put up with my messes!! LOL This quilt may look completely different when it's assembled. You just never know.

I think I've decided that I am not going to add borders to this quilt. I think I really like it the way it is. It looks more authentic without. What do you think? Of course, and I can change my mind once the quilt is together.

And, our van has been healed of it's transmission issues. It had a transmission transplant. They are costly, but so much better than being stranded on the side of the road! So grateful to have that little business taken care of.

Now, hopefully back to some hand sewing.

Happy Quilting!!!!

Sometimes, borders are over-rated. I think it will look good without them.

Quilt Hollow said...

Yeah...no borders! It is very pretty and I bet a good stashbuster.

Thanks for sending me over to the soup recipe too. I recently made some using that quick dry mix above the canned soups called, "Bear Creek." It was actually good!

I have used this quilt as an inspiration for other stuff I've done so personally I don't think it needs anything more unless YOU feel like it.

I'm pleased to hear the transplant went well. Post Op recovery sounds like it was quick. No organ rejection. We like to hear that.

Wow, that is beautiful. Before I clicked on the picture, I thought that inner border was small buttons. WOW. this looks wonderful

That quilt looks like it would be hard. I have not quilted for a very long time and did not do small pieces even then. It is beautiful.

Paula, your quilt is just gorgeous! With or without borders I like it.

It is beautiful! No border...I love it just the way it is.

Diane said...

WOW! It's great! Oh I agree, no border!

You have probably mentioned it before, but how big are the little squares that make the white lines? Such a fun quilt in the making!

I've always loved the double four patch, especially using repro fabrics. It always amazes me how those tiny four-patches create such a striking look.

I agree that a border shouldn't be added. I love how you arranged the blocks so that the white pieces form a pattern.
