Back in November, just for fun, I started making these little 4 patch in a square blocks.
The tutorial is from Blue Elephant Stitches.
I used odds and ends of fabric that were out on my cutting table leftover from several recent projects. Even though red and green are Christmas colors, the fabrics are really "wintry" as well. Snowflakes, pine trees, home.
I ended up making 15 of these little blocks and sewing them together in a 13 x 21 rectangle.
After spray-basting the layers together, I stitched in the ditch to stabilize the whole thing, and then this week I've been hand quilting in the gray and white parts of each block.
This has been my evening slow stitching each day throughout this holiday week, and I'm enjoying it so much!
After I finish up the hand quilting, I'll be binding my little tabletopper with this piece of the Home fabric in black with red and white lettering.
I'm hoping to finish this up this week! Sharing at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.
