A Small Finish

It has been quite a time at our house, the last couple of weeks, but my hubby is on the mend and I have had some sewing time again.  Hooray!  Of course I didn't work on any of my bigger WiPs; instead I started something new and it resulted in a very satisfying small finish, which I always love.  I had been wanting to play with the Disappearing Four-Patch block, and this was the perfect way to do it.  And isn't it the perfect backdrop for my bowl of cherry tomatoes?!  I'm so proud of them!

The four patches came from a charm pack of  Handblock Prints by RJR Fabrics and some gray yardage which I really love called Dit-Dot by Jason Yenter for In The Beginning fabrics.  I quilted it very minimally with diagonal lines through the charm square pieces and straight stitching through the smaller pieces.  It resulted in a fun secondary pattern, which I enjoyed seeing happen!

Now, back to work on those WiPs!  Today I'm linking up to Oh Scrap! where I plan to enjoy looking at lots of other scrappy, fun projects!

Those happy little finishes can really keep us going. Love your disappearing 4patches. (I made one block and haven't gotten back to play with it any more, though I plan to. You know, in my spare time...)

Nice table runner, and yes it makes appealing tomatoes look even more appealing. I had to make disappearing 4-patch blocks as admission to a game at quilt camp once. The lucky winner of the game got them all. They ended up in nice quilts; however, I've not yet returned to them either. Visiting from Oh Scrap!

The first thing I thought Diann was how perfect the table topper looks with the beautiful bowl of tomatoes. LOL - it really does!
Will be praying that your hubby gets back to good health quickly!

Yum! Your tomatoes are beautiful and so is your runner. I have't made that block in years. Might have to put it on my radar again. I always love what you share on Oh Scrap!
