Here is a small lap quilt I finished yesterday. I’m trying to finish some of my older quilts and projects. Last week this was only about 4 blocks and lots of pieces already cut. The tans and greens blended together more than I wanted it to so I decided to stop with a small quilt. I like it though and it would be perfect to keep in the back of the car or how about for a hunter to cuddle up in…
All of the fabrics used are probably over 10 years old, lots of memories for me when I look at it. I had a neat fabric with ducks all over it that I remember using to make my brother place-mats…..a long time ago. I’ll call this the Duck Blind Quilt.
The wind caught the quilt just as I took a photo and I decided I liked the way it looked. I also have another blue quilt all pieced and ready to quilt done with this same pattern. I keep working on using up all the green and blues in my “old” stash.
Rolling up this quilt was fun as it isn’t very big. It is about 40 x 40. Since this was a small quilt I did the quilting on my other 15-91 Singer sewing machine that is in my quilt room. I just did a simple stipple on it. Yesterday there were lots of questions about my quilt frame, I have several other posts about it but I’m going to work on a page with information about it and photos.
Here is the block I used, in Electric Quilt 7 it is called a 4 patch Hourglass square and it has so many possibilities. Bonnie Hunter uses this block in many of her quilts.
This is the same block I used in the quilt in the frame that I showed the other day. Depending on how you turn the blocks and what colors you use gives you an entirely different look.
