Designer Inspiration.

This quilt came together using 2 of the blocks from my Addicted to Scraps column: Four-in-Nine (September/October 2016) and Rolling Stone (March/April 2018).

I love geometric patchwork that gives the illusion of curves without there really being any curves. Chains across a quilt add so much interest to any design and Four Patches are an easy way to do this.

I changed the coloring of the Rolling Stone block so that the dark rectangles are on the outside edge of the block. This helps create the illusion of a curved block when joined with the Four-in-Nine blocks.

Strip piecing makes the Four Patches in the Four-in-Nine block and the side units in the Rolling Stone block quick and easy.

I did have some design challenges, however. I was working with limited stash while at our cabin for the holidays. I didn't have enough of any one fabric for borders, so I went completely scrappy, using many reds for the inner border, and many blues for the outer border to get the job done. I love the effect.
