4-patch fun

 Oh, I've had lots of fun quilting lately. I made the blocks for this first quilt late last year. I made the blocks before (the 1930's prints) and in fact I wanted to make the quilt again just in the 1800's fabrics.
I couldn't find a sashing fabric I liked, so chose to change the setting. Finding setting triangle fabric was easier.  Finally I decided to border it first with sashing fabric then border fabric to match the setting triangles. I wanted it to fit my table in case I was in the mood to use it there. I'll leave it on the wall a few days to think about how I might want to quilt it.

I mentioned last post how I have been cutting my scraps. Since them I've made more blocks.  The pile on the left goes together with the cornerstones shown. I still have to piece the sashing. The pile on the right can go to charity. There are a dozen blocks in each pile. I think. Do I have cataracts or are these pictures really dark? hmm. They could be tops soon but I've been using the longarm in the evening. So not likely.

 I quilted a 2012 top last weekend and I've got another small one ready to quilt next Yes, everywhere I turn I have another one to quilt. It seems if I decide how I want to quilt it then that's what gets quilted next.
