Ezri’s 16-Patch Quilt Progress

Ezri and I have been working on this quilt for awhile. It started with a big bag of 2-1/2″ squares cut from scraps that became a lot of 4-patches. And then when we had no ideas for the 4-patches, we sewed them together into 16-patch blocks that looked like this.

We added a 2-1/2″ strip on two sides to make it a 10″ block. When stitched together, the quilt looks like this. It is pretty big – 60 x 80″ now and will be more with borders.

Ezri stitched four blocks together and then Sherry Gray came along and stitched the four block units together into this quilt. I am going to add borders and quilt it over this Thanksgiving weekend.

In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.
