A Few Pictures of Quilting Stuff

I promised pictures of the other two bags Jenny made when she made mine.  Here are Emily and Becca showing off their new purses.   And here's a salute to the Cricket Buddies.  What is a Cricket Buddy, you might ask?  A person who became a great friend over a high school biology assignment. I think it is tres cool that they still get together when they can, especially since they live from Boston to DC on the eastern seaboard.

So how cool is this!?  Have you ever played with webdings?  I have in other programs but not in Blogger.  What do I find but the subject of my next picture!
Four Patches!  Here is the sample four patch I showed at guild Monday night to get people interested in the lowly four patch.  I don't really think it is lowly, but it certainly is easy!  
I was trying to create a dark diagonal line with both the smaller and larger four patches.  I think the smaller four patches succeeded but the larger ones weren't as successful. 

I have another purple piece with four patches and half square triangles but couldn't find it when I tried Monday afternoon.  Note to self: think about organizing all finished quilts somewhere.  This hunt, throw, lift, hurl system just doesn't cut it.

Upcoming on Institches with Bonnie:
Spring! wall hanging is cut out.  On to sewing today. Hopefully today I'll get at least half of the Spring piece done.  Photos of a four patch posie top that is being donated to Fido for Freedom auction.    

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie

  1. Love your 4 patch quilt. I think that the 4 patch and 9 patch may some of my favorite blocks. It is amazing how much you can create with such simple blocks.


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
