Work in Progress

Just a quick post to show you that I have started on a new project. 


The squares are small and progress is slow and steady.   This is probably my favorite kind of piecing,  and to some extent it is perseverance sewing.  However, I don't get bored piecing endless four-patch units as I enjoy the color and fabric play and  just know that the final result will be well worth the effort.


Many more four-patch units still need to be pieced.

  6. Rita - I love when you debut a new project! The colors are fabulous! Quick question for you on piecing accurately. I think you prewash your fabric...do you starch when you iron? While I think my 1/4" seam has gotten much better, it seems that my cutting isn't as consistent and I'm having a hard time getting those corners to line up. Advice??

  9. oh, I have a stack of little scrap squares in search of a project - this is making me think that maybe they should be fourpatches :)

  10. What defines a "four patch unit"? I tried to figure it out from looking at your quilt but I can't tell.

  12. How small are your squares? 2&1/2"? Do you actually cut each square individually or hurry the process up by sewing 2 strips together and then cutting into 2 &1/2" sewn pairs of squares?
    Lovely fabrics, as always!

  15. I love the way you mostly used full white, but then sometimes switched and used a white fabric with a little bit of a print showing on it.

  18. Just curious, why four squares rather than long strips of squares?
