APQ Quilt Along


A couple months ago I was at a quilt retreat. I had many projects that I should have been working on, but I couldn’t help starting on my Four Patch American Patchwork and Quilting quilt along quilt. I used a jelly roll and a layer cake to make a four patch in a four patch block. They are two different Fig Tree fabric lines that play nicely together. By the end of the retreat, I had a pretty stack of blocks.

When I realized that I wasn’t going to get the quilt done, I settled with a stack of blocks and made a mini with the left over four patch blocks!

Fast forward two months, I finally was able to sew the blocks together. I said fast forward, but it seemed like slow forward. Some days it was torture to leave the blocks in their project box. Now my top is done! apq quilt along1

I want this quilt to have a nice drape. I used a thin Quilter’s Dream Batting cotton batt. For the backing, I used two fabrics that felt extra silky. I didn’t have enough to use one or the other. One fabric is a Free Spirit fabric, the other is a Moda silky woven fabric. It’s going to be luscious!

It wants to be hand quilted. I have it spray basted and ready to go. It will take some time, but I look forward to spending some quality time with my pretty!
