4 Patch Posy

First finish of May. Actually, got this done that first week, but just am now finding time to post!

4 Patch Posy
This is a variation of a Stack and Whack, done with only 4 layers and cutting squares.  I had several larger ones (6") and several smaller ones (4").  And then I quit. I put the whole thing in a project box, SANS directions/patterns or even a note as to what I was doing!  I had some fabric that was still pinned, like I might make more?  

7 years later: I decided to go with a layout that used what I had done so far and just use the rest of the fabric in the border and on the back. So here is the back, using what little I had left after cutting the borders/binding and used the last 4 blocks.

Don't ya love how my quilt has a head and feet? LOL

This is the original piece of fabric I used. It was really cool slipper heels in animal prints and fun colors!

Focus fabric used in blocks

My apologies for such small blurry photos. They were on my ipad and I sent them to my husbands computer, since I'm working off of his today.  And they showed up really, really small! Hmm, not sure why. 

Now I am hoping for some warm weather in May! It was 39 degrees this morning. I covered all my plants last night as there was a front warning!  I think we are going to miss spring totally and go straight into summer! Oh well, at least I don't feel bad staying in and sewing!

Happy Quilting,
