New Project Started

Life continues to be crazy at our house! At least high school started again this week and 2 of the 3 college ones are gone. Slowly things are settling in. Other than work continues to be busy, so keeping up with what everyone is working on is still a challenge!

Each month I teach a small Lori Smith Quilt. This month is 4-patch delight. Only I decided instead of making it 16" x 20" like the pattern to increase it so it will be approx 33" x 42". Here is my progress so far.

I really really like this. The fabrics are great, the lines are clean and the eyes have a place to rest as well.

The perfect "first quilt" for me to see this morning over coffee.

Have a great day!

Mmm...such a sweet quilt. IMHO, there is nothing better than a 4-patch (well, in quilting that is LOL!)

Delicious . . . why wouldn't everyone make it bigger?

Susie said...

Is that your carpet in the background? If it is you have to use a similar blue fabric for the border. It looks good!

It looks wonderful. Congratulations on getting men at work done. You are so productive - working, having all those teenagers, and still getting so much done.
