When I first started making this quilt I took some neutral and green 2" squares out of my scrap bins and just started to sew them together. I didn't really have a design in mind at first but once I got quite a few 4 patches made I came up with the design. Four patches are like nine patches....so simple but so effective and they can become such beautiful quilts!
This quilt is fairly large at approx 84" x 94" and I quilted it using a pantograph and a neutral thread. All of the fabric I used for this quilt came from my stash and that makes me happy. I didn't have quite enough fabric for the backing so I added a couple plain green patches to the back. When I took the quilt off the frame I was able to trim some nice strips from the backing for the binding but I didn't have quite enough so I used some of the plain green fabric to finish it.
I have decided to call this quilt 'Humble Beginnings' and I think the name is perfect. It started out from bits and pieces from my scrap bins but it turned into a beautiful quilt. I think my nephew Daniel is going to really like it!
