Playing with Fabric

March Break is a time to play, right? Heather, over at Books and Quilts was playing with disappearing 4 - patches, last week, and I just had to try them.

I used the instructions, found on What comes next? I used some fat eighths, that I had laying on my cutting table (I had used some of the package to make my mittens, a couple of weeks ago). I cut the largest squares I could from the pieces I had left, which came to 5 1/2". Here is the results.

I like the results. They will trim to 8 1/2".  I am thinking of making more, and see if I can use up some of my fat quarters. I don't remember if I had plans for many of them, when I bought them, and I am running out of space, so I think it is time to use some up.

  1. Hi Kate, those look great. lovely fabrics. Will add a link to that post. Glad you enjoy playing around as well.

  2. I've done the Disappearing 9-patch but not the 4-patch. Love your results and will have to give it a try. Yummy colours, too!

  3. This is a nice result and looks pretty simple, I'll keep it in mind.

  4. Wonderful colours, very inspiring!

  5. Hi, Just came across this post - glad you liked my tutorial - your blocks turned out great!
