And a little of this -
I had never gotten around to making any Double 4 patches in the August colors, so I decided to dig around for a few bits and pieces to make a couple.
In clicking around on some blogs this week, I found this interesting post from Michelle at From Bolt to Beauty where she describes pulling fabric for a quilt designed by Rachel at Stitched in Color, and called a Penny Patch Quilt. She uses squares cut in 2", 3", and 6 1/2." Although mine are cut at 2 1/2" and 4 1/2," I realized that I could create something similar with the addition of some 8 1/2" squares.
So I've been playing around with that idea this afternoon, and it is starting to look like this -
This quilt is going to continue to evolve as I have moments to cut up the scraps and sew them back together again, but with my collection of double 4 patches in all colors of the rainbow, this could become a very Scrap Happy quilt!
