4-Patch Stacked Posies

Today I finished putting on the binding on this king size quilt. It took me over 5 hours just to do that. I have tried putting it on by machine but I just can't get it to look like I like it. I don't mind doing it by hand at all, so I just watch tv and do it.

I'm really pleased at how the quilt turned out. All the blocks are made from the border fabric. Just three fabrics in the whole quilt and I fell in love with that fabric when I saw it last year. Yes, that was LAST YEAR. I got all the blocks done, sewed them into rows and then decided I needed to make the quilt bigger. By then, the fabric store I had bought the fabric from had sold it all. So I got online, found some and finally got it done as big as I needed. Another project finished!!


  1. Linda that is just beautiful. I am also doing one of those and it is hanging on my design wall. I'm hoping I can finish it soon it has been there for awhile. Great job.

  2. So pretty! Can't wait to see it in person!

  3. Oh my gosh! This is incredibly beautiful!!!!

  4. Wow, Your quilt is beautiful. It looks like the stack and whack style but with such small squares. Nice!!!

  5. Stacey,
    It is exactly like stack and whack, but with the squares it's much easier!

  6. What a beautiful quilt, Nice perseverance. I seem to change my mind while quilting an item too and then run into problems as you did.
    It is a gorggeous quilt.
