This Lap Size 4-Patch Quilt Has A Twist
For my Heart Strings 4-Patch Quilt, I wanted to change the traditional layout that uses a single repeating 4-patch block. Instead of using a patchwork with all the same size blocks, I decided to mix it up with alternating blocks of different sizes. The batik prints for this quilt are beautiful and I wanted to show them off in larger size blocks. Then the alternate block is a 4-patch of smaller squares that carries all the colors across the quilt seamlessly. It adds so much more interest to change things up a bit.
