Oh a couple of cooler days and I am so into FALL!!! I had started these disappearing 4 patch blocks a while ago but I just got the idea for this design layout the other day. Just two more rows to sew together.
The print fabrics are from a collection by Sanae called Oh My! and that golden yellow is my favorite Grunge fabric from Moda. Originally I thought I would set these blocks one right next to the other but that was almost vertigo inducing - way way way too busy, even for me. Adding the alternate blocks calmed this down and gave me a much larger quilt. This should be about 58" square when I'm finished. A nice size to throw over the back of the couch.
The next time I do a disappearing 4 patch I will use a constant fabric in every block. I really like how disappearing 4 patch blocks look set right next to each other but in all the examples I looked at there was a constant fabric which gave your eye a chance to rest and I think it needs that.
And speaking of rest, isn't this the life?
Big Dude head on his favorite pillow, napping in the sun, maybe I'll have some time this afternoon to join him.
I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced again today - enjoy all the pretty WIPs on that blog.
