Spring

I've forgotten to tell you that my Disappearing Four Patch has been quilted and bound and is now ready for the giving. The Official Cookie Tester kindly earned his keep by helping me get a full shot of it, but I have to say that this pic really doesn't do it justice.












It's a very soft, traditional and feminine quilt and the swirl that Roberta used to quilt it just finishes it off beautifully - thank you Roberta! All of those florals really evoke the blossoms of Spring and a reminder that we will soon be able to get into the garden.











I backed and bound it with a very traditional blue floral but just about any colour would have worked because there are so many colours in it.












This one is all ready to deliver. I have to say that without Roberta offering to quilt it for me it would still be sitting in a pile of flimsies, but now it will have a new home.  It is a great pattern for charity quilts because it looks like you've put in lots more work than you really did ­čśŐ and it could have lots of different looks. I'd make this one again....M

What a beautiful springtime finish. I'm going to remember The disappearing four patch as a sweet and easy pattern to use for that kind of situation.

It's gorgeous! I just love that block, it has so much interest and movement for not too much effort :) Congratulations on a great finish.

Very pretty! I think I should make a Disappearing 4 patch, too. It looks like you added the other row?

After seeing the close-ups I can tell that the photo of the full quilt does not do it justice except to show the pattern. It doesn't capture the feeling of the quilt, which, in the close-ups, looks just delightful. Congrats on a great finish, Marie.
