It was ok and used the 4 patches. Let's get it together. Well, one of the advantages of retreating is there are lots of opinionated quilters available. And, they don't mind giving you suggestions. Heck, I'm always giving suggestions at these types of events too! So Paula wandered by and said, no, boring or something like that.
She took over the pile of blocks and suggested this layout. We were all surprised how much this simple change helped the overall design of the quilt. It didn't take all that long to sew the blocks together.
Here it is all sewn together but obviously in need of a good pressing. What I didn't realize until looking at these pictures is the go with fabric is directional. That won't make any difference in the big scheme of things. Next up on this is to figure out the backing fabric. I have fabric left over of most of the colors, some blocks and the go with fabric. I guess I'll be piecing the backing too. Now to figure out what binding to use. Any suggestions? I think I have enough of any of the colors I used. This will be donated at some point.
Happy Quilting All!
