More disappearing four patches



So, I took the block lotto idea, and decided to use it to get rid of a few more scraps - this time I used pre-cut 5 inch squares in browns and blues. I had intended to make 12 for a small quilt, but when I went to sew them together, I realised I had made 13, so I set them on point instead and used a very old piece of brown calico someone had given me for the setting triangles. I will add a small border to it in the same brown, then send it along to a friend for her group to turn into a charity donation as well. Still not much of a dent in the little drawers of 5 inch squares, though...

I really like the way this looks on-point! I have a couple of sets of an old line of charms that are meant to look like suit fabric (why? who knows!) that would probably be a good fit for this treatment...

This is fabulous! I love the setting and the colours! Someone is bound to get a lot of comfort from this!

I like it set on point like this!
