4 X 4

A 4 by 4 isn't always a pick-up truck, to me, it's 4 blocks sewn together.  This photo shows that where the 4 corners come together, it makes a secondary pattern.  Getting all four colors to be represented throughout the quilt top at that intersection, a bit of a challenge  This was one of the easiest quilt tops that I have even sewn together since there aren't that many seams to match up and since the kites are all cut out on the bias this makes them very stretchy. 

I got an email from Connecting Threads which is the mail order fabric store that I purchased this very baby quilt kit from.  I had finished the quilt top and was planning to look for the backing fabric during the January clearance sales that most fabric stores have.  I was thrilled to see that some of the fabric from the baby quilt collection was 50% off. .MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME!  The green fruit print is what I chose for the backing fabric and it is on it's way. Going to take a few days off from work to focus on the holiday.  The question is, will I be able to stand not sewing for a few days...we will see.  Here's hoping that everyone's Christmas is merry and bright!
