    Four Patch- Four Days

    My DH saw these coordinating flannel fat quarters at a yard sale and insisted I buy them. I really didn't know what I would do with them, but hey, since he "insisted", right? Well, I took them home, washed and ironed them and noticed how pretty all the burgandys looked together. I cut out 6.5" squares and started hand sewing them while watching TV. The next thing I knew...four days later I had completed a quilt!

    I'd say your husband had great intuitions. Your 4 patch is very pretty and looks so comfy and cozy, like grandma's used to make. Great job both of you.

    You have just made my day! I somewhat impulsively offered to make lap quilts for my nephew and his wife who just got married. Like I don't have enough on my plate, and I just added two more quilts! But your pattern is perfect and quick for the fabric I have for my nephew.

    Thanks for posting your quilt!!!!

    I want to wrap myself up in that - very pretty!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    What a wonderful find, and a lovely quilt. Your DH must have a good eye to spot fabric at a garage sale. Mine would probably never notice it - or would at least pretend not to. LOL
