    stacked 4 patch posey - a new layout

    I have made several stacked 4 patch quilts, but I try to do a different layout with each one I make.
    For this one, the quilt is a 9 patch on point with alternating solid blocks, and in those solid blocks I appliqued the 4 patch into a circle - so it looks like a kaleidoscope.
    I started out making it smaller, but DH saw it on the design wall, and liked it and said to make it bigger, so I had to buy more of the main fabric, and cut another whole group from 4 repeats.
    I will definately send this one out to a long arm quilter.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I love a quilt that is fun to sit under AND to explore the individual blocks while you're at it.
    Yours really fits the bill beautifully!!

    Your quilt and your colors are truly awesome. Your idea was great. I can see why your husband wanted you to make it bigger.
