An Important Step

On Thursday morning, a big step was taken toward an important project for this year. I started making the blocks for my 'Turning Four-T' quilt.

It's quite the milestone, so I'm using some of my favourite fabrics. Amongst those are some precious conversationals that my wonderful friend Linda sent me quite a while back. I have seven fat quarters, which is not quite enough, so I'm going to intersperse them with a light tea dye fabric. Had I decided not to make a pieced border, the conversations may have been plenty, but I'm a scrappy quilt girl, so I'll love 'making do'.

In other news, my 'Dogtooth Violets' quilt has just come out in print in Australian Patchwork and Quilting. I haven't received my copy in the mail just yet, but I'll share as soon as I have it. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled - I just love the quilt!

I like the Turning Four-T quilt blocks. I also loved the Dogtooth Violet quilt and am glad that it is being published, so that I can get the directions. Looking forward to your next publish, maybe you should do a book of your favorite quilts!

I love your turning four T idea, and I'm still toying with the idea of stealing it, I'll be turning 40 on Wednesday!

I'm way past using the 4-T pattern as intended, but it is nice. Congratulations on the publication of 'Dogtooth Violets' - that one is really lovely too.

I got my copy on (I think) Thursday; I knew as soon as I saw the corner as I was turning the page what it was. It looks great!

I got my copy of APQ on Thursday and as soon as I saw the quilt I recognised it. Well done.

I didn't know what the Turning 4 meant until I read the comments. Ahem, already past that a bit :)

It's hard to cut into favorite fabrics, isn't it? I have a few I get out and think over, but always end up putting away again!

Congrats on another quilt magazine success!
