4-Patch Flip!

My visit with my MIL and Richard's Grandmother went very well. They didn't stay very long, because of Richard having to get up at midnight. Doris loved her quilt! You can usually tell if they really do like them or not by their reaction. And I really think that she liked it, so I was very happy. Grandma got hers on Christmas so they were arguing over whose was the prettiest.

Richard laughed at me, because they were not even out of the driveway and I was grabbing my quilt. I finally got to add the borders on it! Again, this is the "4-Patch Flip" pattern that I got from Jen and Cindy. This is the second one that I have made. I usually don't like to make too many of the same quilt, but my other one looks so different since it was done in all sorts of scraps. It is a very easy quilt to do and goes together very quickly. The blocks measure 9 inches and I ended up with 56 blocks and a 6 inch border. So that should measure out at around 75 x 84, if I did my math right. I went ahead and cut my binding from the blue border print so that it would be ready when I get ready to quilt it.

Tomorrow I have to do my weekly shopping so I'm not sure how much quilting that I will get done. Hopefully, I will get to work on something. Maybe I can sew the boys pillowcases or something, or maybe even add borders to another top???

I love the quilt. Isn't it nice to have someone appreciate the work and effort that went into a quilt you made?
