I couldn't resist, I love simple blocks like the four-patch. They are timeless and classic, but yet so powerful. I thought Brenda Riddle's new Ambleside collection by Moda Fabrics would be perfect to use in my quilt.
I love being able to cut my blocks down so I sewed my strips at 1.75" instead of 1.5." Then subcut them at 1.75" again. After I sewed my four patches together, I trimmed them down to 2.5" using the Creative Grids 2.5" ruler.
When I sewed my quilt together, I added 1/2" to the cut sizes of the setting and corner triangles. Then I trimmed the quilt down and it came out perfectly squared up and straight.
Then I added three different borders. My first border finishes at 1", my second bordered finishes at 1/2" and my third border finishes at 5".
And here is my final quilt! Thank you so much Nubin for the beautiful quilting, it looks stunning!
