    Here is 3 more picture, of my newest quilt.. And, to me a real test for doing(using ) the blanket stitch.. A younger brother wanted me to make him a quilt, using the word, "TRIUMPH", in the middle of his quilt.. As to what block, I'm not sure of yet.. And for some of you's that are wondering why the triumph word, will be, in his quilt.. The reason why, is that he is being rehabilitated, in a correctional facility, and will be released(paroled) next Sept...One more thing, and I'm sold on this product called "Steam-A-Seam. It's a fusible webbing, and I used it for the first time, with the blanket stitch, and lettering. To me a wonderful product..

    A picture of my quilt using 2"squares, to make the 4 patch, for this quilt.

    Your "Triumph" really is a triumph!! It looks great and I can't wait to see the whole quilt when that time comes. :D :thumbup:
    Your 4-patch is wonderful, it looks very retro to me, and makes me smile :D:D

    Steam a seam is great, but I still run a little fray-check over the exposed edges. You always do such nice work.

    Looking good Don! I love Steam a Seam 2 also. I like that its repositionable and you dont have to iron it on first to get it to stay where you want, that way you can play around with your shapes.

    I like both! The lettering might need to be top stitched in matching thread just to make sure it stays. The 4-patch is realy neat. I can picture that using my 30's repro fabric. I really love it.

    I love the 4 patch!! I have one similar to it in my projects to be started pile. Speaking of that pile -what is it called? The fabrics have been purchased along with the patter so it is not yet a UFO or even a WIP. What is it? Help anyone :)
