As soon as I saw the photos of little Maisy Jane I was inspired to make her a "cuddle quilt" using the disappearing four-patch pattern I just learned and fabric from my stash of thirties reproduction fabrics. I worked most of yesterday and I'm continuing to piece the blocks today. I'm enjoying the process immensely.
Here's a brief look at how the blocks are assembled.
Start with a simple four-patch. I used five inch squares of fabric sewn like this.
Using a rotary cutter, slice the block four times one inch from center.
Do a bit of rearranging. This is the tricky part. Sew back together in the new arrangement.
Add the block to its sisters on the design wall. The new block is second from bottom on left.
When it's finished, it will get a border and machine quilting.
