I took two blocks and decided to cut the 4 patches in half corner to corner then I used half of each block and to make a pinwheel. It looked ok but I wanted more. So I decided to do the dp4 patch method and this is what I ended

I used Darlene Zimmerman's EZ Dresden ruler to make the petals, then quilted the center using a curved arc - reminds me of a Spirograph game when I was a kid. The background and border quilting just followed the pattern of the fabric. I sure like my new table topper.
Some more entries.
I am so thrilled this year to have entered in competition. Here are some photos of quilts that won. My quest to reach 120 UFO Completions is getting closer and my work is getting better as I go. I will say, you must learn to do binding correct to finally finish a project to its fullest beauty. After getting the comments again from the judges on bindings, I now am mastering the art of binding. It really does make the quilt look better.
Is there an available date for the 2013 Houston International Quilt Show?

Time to start Row G! (Just for a break!)
Thanks for following my journey!
Hello fellow quilters. I am new to this site.
My maternal grandmother taught me to quilt. She was an award winning quilter. Not a summer fair went by without one of her quilts taking a ribbon!
I like to make serviceable quilts. String quilts are my absolute favorite because they make up fast, are very durable and I can use bits and pieces.
Here is a quilt top I've just finished. If The Man of the house can get the sewing machine FIXED (grrrr) I'll get it completely finished this
