Double Four-Patch

The double 4 patch went together pretty quickly, but deciding on a border did not!


Medium blue, dark blue....


Red....pink...
Okay, neither!I liked pink but couldn't make it work.

So I went with cheddar and brown! Weird combination, but one that said quirky and humble. I have one other quilt with a border like this and it was an accident, this one was on purpose. 
As I mentioned before a double 4 patch is an old pattern but this setting is from Red Crinoline, called Wilderness Road. It was a fun one to swap with friends and gave us a big variety of prints. Thanks Kevin and Kathy!


A close up. 

If you only want quilts, you can end right here.

Had a quick overnight backpacking trip on Saturday to the Mt Jefferson Wilderness area west of Sisters, Oregon.



Porter can't jump over the logs so we have to help. 


Fishing was not good, mosquitoes were looking for lunch, but we had a good time away.

I hope your week is going great!

  9. The double 4 patch makes a beautiful quilt and uses lots of scraps. The cheddar really highlights the whole quilt. Great job!
