A Sliced Four Patch Quilt

Guess what?! I actually used one of my quilting books again! Some days I am accused of not using them. When I bought  Modern Designs for Classic Quilts I really wanted to try the sliced four patch quilt pattern. So when I found out that a friend was having a baby soon I thought it was a perfect chance to make it!  (Especially since she was so sweet to me when I was having my first baby!)


This quilt reminded me of my very first quilt that I started, a disappearing nine patch. (which sat on the rocking chair and now keeps me warmer on my side of the bed until I get my chopsticks quilt made) Making this baby quilt helped me see how much I have grown and learned since April 2012. That I can actually call myself a quilter, lol. That matching points do get me excited!


Although the book said to square these off at 10.5 inches that was not possible. Perhaps my seams weren’t scant enough. (I do use a 1/4” foot.) I squared them off at 10” instead. Leaving this quilt to measure at an approx. 37.5” square


It is backed in some more dots! I think that this quilt has a dot and transportation theme to it! You will see some more of these fabrics in another quilt soon!


I hope that this quilt sees a lot of tummy time and cuddle time. I am super thrilled with how it turned out. (So is my husband. I love it when he likes what I make!) Plus it was fun to make!

Love the blues and greens. I too have 1/4 inch marking on my sewing machine, but still don't get accurately sized blocks. Sigh.

This is a really great boy quilt, but would work for a girl, too.
Well done.

Great job. I love the colors and it is fun to see how far we've come as quilters. I know when I look at some of my early quilts I just shake my head. Take lots of pictures and keep a journal. It's easy to forget the things you make after awhile.

The colors are wonderful, and it truly is fun to take a look back and see how far we've come.

cute D4P quilt, and I love me some polkadots in a quilt. You just can't go wrong (and the fact that they're green- score!).

Thanks so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
