I’ve been feeling a little under the weather this week so I haven’t gotten much done. I did get the borders put on the little Disappearing 4 Patch quilt.
I bought the Kansas City Star on the day this month’s block came out (11 days ago). I looked at it with all the applique flowers and leaves and put it away. This week I was going to force myself to work on it but decided I needed more white fabric. That was my excuse. I really don’t think I’m going to be able to finish this quilt. Life is short and there are so many other quilts I want to make. The first block turned out cute though and will make a great pillow cover!
In other news, I’ve seen this quilt-along around the web:
I need to go out and find the April issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine because it has 3 different quilts that use the good old 4 Patch block. I guess quilt bloggers all over have been making 4 patch blocks in anticipation of the magazine coming out – hence the “quilt along”. I’ll probably have to put the magazine away for later because I DO NOT need to start any new projects.
