I’ve been seeing this quilt all over the internet and I wanted to give it a try. I love these “trick” blocks. This quilt is usually made with charm square packs. You need a light colored fabric pack and a dark colored but it would probably work with just about any fabrics. I picked out a couple yards of pretty pinks so it would have a Valentine feel. Then I had to cut out 5 inch blocks to use. If you go the charm pack route, all the beginning cutting is already done.
I put them on my design wall one way.
I like this layout much better. It’s funny though because the 4 patch came back. The blocks turn out to be 8 inches finished so I think I’ll use a total of 20. I really wanted to bring in some yellow to show off the bumblebee wings so I found a picture with little stars in the sashing and I tried that.
I just did a little bit so I could see how it looked. I didn’t like it. The yellow didn’t pop out from the pink and it just did nothing for the quilt. I may add a tiny yellow border along with a larger pink border or one of those quilt bindings with a yellow piping. I just need to find the right color yellow.
So that’s one version of the Disappearing 4 patch. I’ll post more photos when I finish.
