I am so weak

remember these gifted squares from Sharon?
she KNOWS I cant resist playing
(enabler) LOL

so play turned into over 80- 4 patch blocks

they are like potato chips you know
sewed a light to a dark
then made 4 patches
no rhyme nor reason
then I found Bonnie Hunters book
that was given to me
the cover is her Nantucket quilt
and YOU know what happens next, right?

get down on the "design floor" and play

this picture took about 4 tries to get
Dunkin kept
"rearranging the blocks" for me
but I kinda like this
I am not usually a "red" kinda gal
but I was gifted some red fat quarters
that I think went nicely with the blocks
I see another UFO.........LOL

this was the inspiration quilt
even though my setting is different
Bonnie used 2 inch squares
these are 2 1/2 so bigger
and I just kinda went with it

a little play is all you need.......
to make another UFO  ha ha
this looks like it wont be too hard
to get into a top fast though
sew 2 of the 4 patch blocks together
and then sew them to the reds in rows
what have you been sewing?

Wow 80 4 patch units? And I thought I was squirrely.

These look great! I have a few small squares that need to make it into a donation quilt and you are giving me ideas here.

2-1/2" squares are so versatile and fun to play with. I can see how making one four patch can easily turn into 80! :) Have fun playing with the layout! Thanks for linking to Main Crush Monday!

You made the design your own, always a good thing!

"A little play is all you need to make another UFO" is what gets me into trouble every time! I like your design with the 4 patches! It will be fun to see what happens next!

That is looking to nice to become a UFO. You'll keep at it and have a nice top soon.

Lovely setting--I especially like that dark red/maroon setting off your 4-patches so well.
Nice job--hugs, Julierose

I love seeing what others do with their scraps etc. Lovely result.

What a great use of your squares...that led you to a quilt designed by you even if you were inspired by Bonnie's book. Lovely.
