I started the disappearing 4-patch charity quilt for ValleyMQG. There is something mysterious about working on a project that had many hands involved before it gets to you. I’ve done this before, you can read about it here.
I have 8 4-patch blocks that needed to be cut, rearranged and sewn back together. I turned on my favorite music and lost myself in it. What I did was turning on an autopilot mode and took off.
1. There was no instructions, so I looked for disappearing 4-patch block tutorial.
2. I started cutting one block at a time and rearranged the pieces. Here are pictures of a block. Having a swirly cutting board is very helpful!!
3. Sewing started after I got all the blocks cut. This is the step that having a zen-like mood is really helpful. Because each person sews differently and no two sewing machines are alike, I tried my best to match the seams. Only 8 blocks to do, I kept reminding myself. 😂🤣 Before I knew it, I've finished 5 blocks.
4. After I get all 8 blocks done, I’ll trim all 20 blocks to a uniform size of 14” squares. Then we'll see what I have on the design wall.
Thanks for stopping by.
