Four-Patch Spinning Blossoms Top

This Four-Patch Spinning Blossoms top was a kit from Connecting Threads website. I should have pre-washed the fabric because the flower print was quite stiff and the iron dragged on it a lot, but I don't usually pre-wash fabric and so there it is!!! I do hope some girl will like it. The middle four-patches do a spinning thing just like a stack and whack , except they are only 4 squares. It was fun to see all the different blocks appear. Although I think I like the one I did that had more sides to it.

Hope it isn't too hot where you are and you are able to quilt----I've been quilting and when I get too hot, I stop and take a break and read a book---sometimes I even fall asleep and take a short nap---Buster, our poodle usually sleeps all day---every now and then he comes in the sewing room to get a pat on the head and then he goes back to sleep!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

I went to CT to see if they still have these fabrics and I could not find them. Your quilt is so spring like, I am sure anyone who receives it is going to LOVE it.

That is a very pretty quilt - someone is going to love it! Yes, it's too hot to sew here, and too busy - but I did pull out a machine to see if I could get it working, and I did! Now if the weather would only cooperate....
