Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Last night was our “Yard Sale” for our Quilt Guild. At the end of the evening, there was a Show and Tell of the 24 Comfort Quilts that members have made over the last month for patients at the Cancer Center. It is super¬†inspiring to see the beautiful quilts that are made as donation quilts. One of those quilts really caught my eye, and I just had to draw it in EQ to see how hard it would be to make. It gives the illusion of a plaid, but I also thought it could be made up as a scrappy quilt too. Here are some pictures. I think you will see how she made it.

This would work up in a flash with my AccuQuilt GO! 2-1/2″ strip cutter and the 4-1/2″ strip cutter.

Here’s an EQ graphic of it in green–Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

And this is a diagram of how it’s put together. It is a row of 4″ light square and 4-patch alternating beginning and ending with the light 4″ (finished) square. And a second row of 4″ dark square and 4-patch alternating beginning and ending with the four patch.

Just for good measure – here’s a scrappy one in bright Spring colors.

Have a Happy Day!
