2 by 4 Quilt TopJune 7, 2017 / byAnna Graham / Categories : Feeds
I finished my 2 by 4 quilt top yesterday! I’m definitely excited about it. I had been plotting and planning after finalizing my fat quarter bundle for Stash Fabrics Design Star last year. There was no way I wanted it to sit around any longer! I just love these colors and fabrics together. They’re fresh and springy and make me pretty darn happy.
I had considered doing something a bit more elaborate with the bundle and kept flipping through my list of quilts that I someday wanted to make. Nothing was quite striking a chord though. Until Ashley posted her latest 2 by 4 quilt top, that’s when it sort of clicked in my head, but then it took my brain a few months to finally commit and then one day I started chopping up fabric. It just felt right.
As I was sewing the blocks together I realized I really didn’t have a plan for this quilt and who it will eventually live with. Almost every time I make a quilt I have a gift to give or already have somewhere I want to donate it to, but not this time. I suppose I might keep it for myself but I think I’ll wait until its finished. It’s kind of different feeling to not know where it’ll end up, but I do know I’m excited to quilt it. It doesn’t feel like I make a lot of quilts, so I really enjoy the quilting process itself. I’ve spent enough time making mistakes and learning that now I’m able to not worry about messing things up, so it’s relaxing and exciting at the same time.
