Tilted Four Patch

Hello Everyone,

Yes, another project that I was working on at my recent quilt retreat. Don't forget, I was almost gone for a week! Loved every minute too.

I am involved in an online swap with my quilting podcast buddies and we had to make 4 blocks of the Tilting Four Patch. The pattern came from The Quilter's Cache and is free and downloadable, just click here to get the pattern.

We could use any fabric of our choosing to send to our partner. Since I was prepping for a Judy Niemeyer Class (that I am taking today) with batiks, that is what I chose.

Here are the results...


I really like the results. I just hope my partner likes the blocks too.


I will be putting them in the mail tomorrow. The bright batiks really pop against the dark batik, don't they? It would be really neat to see some of you making the same block and seeing the fabrics that you would choose! Let me know if you do, I would love to see them

Don't forget to enter my giveaway on this blogpost, it ends tomorrow.

Also, don't forget all pre-cuts in the shop are on sale for 15% through Friday. Use the code precut15 at checkout. They make great stocking stuffers!

Until Next Time...

Jackie,

Those blocks are awesome. Just like something I would like to receive!!! Working on mine currently, but we're not partnered up this time. Maybe next time, I love all your brights!

Gorgeous Jackie! Great way to really show off the beautiful batik colours.

I just completed a quilt top with this askew setting - However, I had a very difficult time piecing it together. Do you have any tricks?
PS - the colors are great against the dark background. It really makes the float!

Beautiful blocks! Good choice to use the batiks! :0)

Can't wait to see what you make with Judy today! I'd love to take a class with her. Speaking of her patterns, I need to get started on that wedding ring star.

Jean said...

She will love them.

This is off the post topic, but do you by chance have extra copies of the magazine you were in with the Kaffe Fassett diamond quilt on the cover? June/July Quilt Magazine?

Love the brights Jackie. I'm sure your partner will be pleasantly surprised. I've made these same blocks in black and white with a touch of red for a swap. Isn't Quilters Cache an awesome site? I've known Marcia for quite a few years. She's a talented designer and works hard to add new patterns each year.

Wait!! I think I am your partner!!!
Love this block, must give it a try!

I've been to Marcia's site many times but missed this pattern, guess I'll have to revisit. Your blocks were great.
