The four-patch four-patch top is in one piece and I'm thinking I may add a pieced border, either checkerboards or piano keys.

I can see that I could have some fun with this design and really think about the colour placement, but when it comes down to it I wanted to use the scraps up and not agonise over every block.
So it's done, and there were some leftover blocks I didn't need that were sewn into a small crib quilt top. Now the box is almost empty!

These two lone blocks will go into the Drawer of Requirement until I need some little fillers, and I'll see what new project I can store in here. The sewing room abhors an empty container....

Just adorable Mereth, you're really doing such a great job using up your scraps.
Hope you've had a great weekend, and caught a little of the rain up your way.

I've always loved double four patch blocks and the layout you used is so interesting. I love it!

The kind of quilt that I can look at forever. You are so talented. I so wish you would come to the US to show your quilts, and teach.

WOW! How inspiring! I have just started with leaders and enders 4 patches and am getting into the habit of it now. Your quilt is gorgeous!
