I started working on a baby quilt for our grand-daughter due the end of September. Her name is Hayden Drew. So cute!!!
Her mom has picked out the colors of gray, turquoise, purple and lavender. So I decided to make her quilt out of the gray and turquoise and make her big brother a matching quilt. Only larger!!!
I had a chat with Cooper about the quilts, and he agreed that it was a good idea :^)
This is the disappearing 4 patch. I googled it and found may tutorials showing the instructions.
This is how I am doing it:
|Lay out my squares to sew one seam down the middle|
|Sew the second seam, but pin those seams together so they match almost perfect.|
|Press seams open, less bulk that way.|
|Then cut 1" away from the center seam on all sides as above.|
|Change the position of the center strip pieces. The bottom set goes to the top, the top to the bottom, the left goes to the right side and the right to the left as you can see.|
|Then stitch it back together!! Easy enough!! And very cool looking.|
Take care friends, Happy Quilting and keep that mind sharp!!! Martha
