Four in Four Finished

I finished the Four in Four Quilt.

The pattern is "Emma" by Bella Moon (from Vancouver). It is 48" x 66" and I used 12 Bali fat quarters to make it. I talk about making it here (I made changes to the size of the pattern).

I used cotton batting and quilted it with an allover pattern of butterflies, loops and ginkgo leaves on my home sewing machine. The back is flannel.

I am really pleased with how it turned out. It was a great pattern to make, and very easy. Simple patterns, like this, really seem to let the beautiful fabric shine. (The pictures don't seem to do the fabric justice.)
When I made this quilt I ironed the fat quarters before cutting and then didn't iron anything until the whole top was finished. I find that for quilts with simple squares it is easier to match seams when they are only finger pressed. They seem to nest together better.

It was very windy yesterday when the quilt was drying!

Have a great day and thanks for dropping by!
