    Double Four Patch

    Here's a Double Four Patch I made using the stash. I can't justify more fabric purchases until I get rid of some of what is here....

    Anyway... it finishes at approximately 56 inches square. I found a free, basic pattern online and used it to make something the size I wanted.

    Very attractive pattern! I also love the variation in your blues - everything about this quilt says simple and elegant. I like it very much.

    Very nice! I need to do that, too. Especially since I went to Goodwill and bought 115 yards of fabric this past Sunday....couldn't pass it up. It was obviously a quilters stash who had passed away or was downsizing to move into a smaller place. The fabrics are fantastic LQS quality, and it worked out to be less than $3 a yard. I'm slowly using the Bonnie Hunter method to cut down the containers of scraps I have that are smaller than fat quarters into certain sizes so I can quickly make quilts in the future with those scraps. There is never enough time....

    Since blue is my favorite and scrappy are my favorite.....this quilt is a winner in every way. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I don't even like blue but that is an attractive quilt. I find simple is often best and makes for relaxing stitching.

    I've never seen that pattern before, but I really love it. Blue is my favorite color. Your blues really stand out.

    Thank you, Everyone!

    This quilt was fun to make. Though the randomness is challenging for me. I seem to insist on order. And with this, I grabbed a piece and sewed it on.

    Thanks again!!

    Each block is just 2 four patches and 2 squares. When put together correctly they for the chains. It is a beautiful quilt!
