4 X 4 Quilt

Last week ago I showed you a scrappy quilt made using leftover 9 patches from Scrappy 9 Patches. The next project was making a flimsy from extra squares used in the border of Sweet Surrender.

I knew I wanted to strip piece the Sweet Surrender border, so much easier than sewing individual blocks together. I also knew there would be a lot of leftover squares. In my mind, I had been casually thinking about what to do with the extra strips and squares. 


The first thing I do every morning, while sipping my coffee before heading out to the barn, is check the Missouri Star Quilt Co. website and see what the daily deal is for that day. One day I checked and the 4 X 4 pattern was a free download for that day's daily deal and, it used squares, perfect!


Here is my version of the 4 X 4 quilt. I arranged the blocks differently than the picture on the front of the pattern.

Since I was using leftover strip pieces, I didn't make my blocks like the pattern said. A lot of seams were pressed open. There were enough leftover strips to make the majority of the quilt which was very nice.

My quilt measures 56" by 64" and will be long arm quilted. I'm not sure who or where this quilt will be gifted but it's nice to have a finished quilt ready to go when you need a gift for a special person.

  5. Hi Gretchen! This quilt is a great use of all those leftover blocks and strips. I always think of these as a 'free' quilt in several ways. The fabrics were purchased for another project, plus it is freeing your stash of those leftovers. That's a win/win in my book. Happy Thursday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. I decided to be different and make the design off set. I've been wanting to do that with a project and I really like how this looks. I'll do it again with another project someday.
