WIP Wednesday: Disappearing 4-Patch

It is Wednesday.  I go back to work on nights Friday.  I had such grand plans usual, life interferes.

So, here is today's WIP

I was trying to work on these Disappearing 4-patches.  They are pieced in the Twirl  collection by Me and My Sister for Moda.  I didn't realize there was black in the collection. I am using them for a quilt for a baby girl.  I just can't leave the black.

So, here are all the blocks I am using:

I have 6 more 4-patches to make disappear.  

I am going to sash them with leftovers from the Making Change quilt.  I finished that top Monday.  It should have gone on the quilting machine last night but I am a clumsy oaf.

It was supposed to rain here today and tomorrow.  I thought I would make good use of my time and wash the cars yesterday when it was sunny.  I did that with reasonable success.  Then I tripped and fell and messed up my left hand.  If you look too closely at the D4Ps above you will see they aren't quite right.  That is because I can't hold a ruler down firmly with my left hand.  Grrrr....

This too shall pass.  When it does I will set these blocks and then turn the entire thing on point and add white triangles to the corners to make it a decent size.  I have a couple of the greens from the collection to potentially use as a border and binding.

What are you working on today?  I am linking up with Freshly Pieced.  Be sure to go check out the other WIPs.  They are truly inspiring.

Keep Stitchin'!



  1. Mary, I am doing this SAME fabric in the SAME pattern!. I just came upon yours looking for ideas. I am wondering if you have a picture of the completed quilt with it set on point? I just can't picture what to do with so few blocks that were made out of the charm pack.

  2. Thanks for commenting. Sorry for the late reply. Google sent it to my "social" folder and I didn't see it until today. There is another post on this quilt on April 20, 2012.

    It turned out pretty well on point. I added some butterflies in the corner but you could leave that out or applique something there if you don't have an embroidery machine. Can't wait to see what you do!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love hearing from people. I have turned word verification back off. We will see how that works.
