Quilting Weekend Fun

As this past weekend was International Quilting Weekend, I decided to have some fun playing with pre-cuts. It started with watching a tutorial on The Quilt Show for "how to make quick 4 patches from charm squares."  I made a lot of 4-patches.  I also learned that sometimes those precuts aren't as accurate as cutting them myself.  Oops!  So everything I sewed wasn't perfect.  But who cares?  It was still fun.

I made this cute little quilt top that will probably be enlarged later.
I call it "Charming Little Four Patches" because every part of it started as a four patch made from charm squares.  I decided to add the three disappearing four patch blocks in for variety and just because I could.  I love the scrap happy look of it.

My giveaway for a one year Star Membership to The Quilt Show is still running.  I think it ends at midnight tonight,  if I set the time correctly.  And I will post winners the following day.  You can find that at the post Day Two International Quilting Weekend(Giveaways!)
So if you haven't entered - go put your name in the hat.  You just need to use the rafflecopter thingy and comment as requested to be entered.

I love your mantra " ...just because I could!" And always with color. ��

Love the disappearing four patches--one of my first quilts used that pattern in it and I loved the way it looked; just recently gave it to one of my Little Ones for her birthday.

Scrappy is the only way I know how to construct and I find yours ever so beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Love all the scrappy colors. Maybe all those orphan charm squares WILL find a home.
