More Yellow 4-Patch Blocks

The original plan for this week had been to spend it making hay. However, the weather has not cooperated, so I've been stitching as fast as I can before I need to head out to the hayfield.

After I finished the last row of Nearly Insane, I prepped the pieces for the additional 13 yellow blocks I need for my RSC blocks. I added other yellows than the original 15 blocks so they would look somewhat different. Sorry the picture is dark.

I laid part of the blocks out on the display floor to give you an idea of the tentative plan for the quilt. This is a small version of what will eventually be a king sized quilt.

Obviously it will look nicer when all the colors are in the quilt.

  1. I know several that help get the hay in and it seems it is a chore they dread but know it needs to be done. Love your quilt blocks

  5. Very impressive. You are proving that we can make fabulous quilts even with tiny pieces if we take it slow, one month at a time! Good job.

  10. You will have such a happy quilt when all the colours join in. Make hay when the sun shines; quilt when it doesn't. Good thinking.

  12. Love your four patches! I've been making them as leader/enders for a long time, with no plan for what to do with them. Thanks for a gorgeous idea!

    1. Glad I gave you an idea for your 4-patches. These are easy to make and a very simple pattern. They can be arranged several different ways but I think this is the way they will be laid.

  14. My heavens! It's my first visit but I am stunned by the beauty of your quilts and your farm. I live in a rural area of Louisiana, so I had to check out the farm photos. The ones with snow are just gorgeous. Of course, because I've never lived outside of Louisiana, I can't imagine the cold and (to me) the misery of so much ice and snow. I've thoroughly enjoyed your blog and promise I'll be back for more visits. (I haven't looked at the finished quilts.)

  20. This is going to be a terrific quilt! I love the layout and the way the colors change in the rows of chains. You have one turquoise four patch turned the wrong way (upper right corner of the photo).

    1. I just hurriedly laid the blocks out to show what the design would be like. They aren't sewn together yet. But thanks for letting me know.
