I move between paper and fabric quite often in my art. I have been itching to get a new quilt started and I finally did it today. I pulled out a stack of fat quarters from Anna Maria Horner called “Cocktail Party” from her Garden Party line of fabric. What a delicious fat stack of colors these are!
I wanted to make something simple, but would have lots of impact. A simple four-patch came to mind. After washing and ironing the fabrics, I started cutting and sewing. Here are the stacks of four patch squares that I have so far.
I haven’t decided yet whether I will sew these together, side by side, or if I will add a strip in between. We’ll see once I get all of the four patches sewn. Stay tuned.
oooh! look at all that yumminess! can’t wait to see how you decide to do it. 🙂
Great colors in this patchwork! isn’t it interesting how simple patterns like squares and triangles have such a huge potential for when created from well-designed fabric…have been working in paint and paper for quite a while now, but with Christmas coming…gifts have to be made…! thanks for the inspiration.
These are gorgeous fabrics!
