I belong to the Georgia Friendship Guild. I love this group of ladies. We have a business meeting the first Wednesday of the month and a workshop on the third Wednesday of the month. I admire the ladies who have served in the Vice President slot as they are responsible for planning the programs and workshop. It is a challenge to find interesting topics on a limited budget.
One of our workshops this past year was a disappearing four patch. I've seen the pattern many times but have not tried it. This particular pattern used big blocks... 10 inch. I used two layer cakes. (Anyone who is familiar with my stash knows that I have an abundance of layer cakes thanks to Missouri Star Quilt Company's deal of the day.)
I had a layer cake of beach prints designed by Paul Brent who is an artist from Panama City, FL. We had several of his prints in our condo at the beach. I combined it with a white layer cake. Here's the result...
Isn't this a happy quilt? I quilted it with a light blue thread. I was so pleased with the end result. Joe and I made a trip to the Outer Banks in October. We spent some time with Joe's friends, Frank and Ann. I gifted this quilt to them for their hospitality. They have a home on the Pamlico River in NC and the quilt seemed to fit the decor of the home.
I see another one of these in my future. I have many layer cakes just waiting to be stitched, cut, and stitched again. After all, isn't that what quilters do?
