Four Patch Finish

I feel like finishes have been pretty slow around here lately.  I just haven't found much time to sew.


But I did get my scrappy 4 patch colorwash quilt all quilted up and bound.



This quilt was a great scrap buster.  It is 100% from the scrap bin!




It  is made from 2.5" squares.  Each 4 patch is made with two fabrics - a print and a solid.
However, you could use whatever size square you wanted to.




I have been wanting to find a home for this multi-colored fabric.  It worked perfectly on the back.  For the quilting, I simply quilted a squiggly line along the 4 patches.  I also used Hobbs Polydown batting so it adds a bit of poof to the quilt.




I am not sure where this quilt will end up.  It will just have to stay with me for a bit until it finds its home.  I really should test it out with a little nap before I pass it on!

Have a great weekend!

Lovely quilt. I definitely think you should test it out for a while to see how comfy it is and then you will know where to gift it. I know it will be well loved.

Wow, all those colors came together so well for this colorwash - excellent! And the back does go well with everything. Great finish!

It turned out so so good! I'm sure it will find the perfect home once you decide to let it go! And, I'm also sure you will have more finishes to share when you have the time!
