Judy L. drew #6 for this month’s UFO challenge so I’m working on my Northcott “High Tea” 4 Patch Stacked Posies (HD Designs). All the blocks had already been sewn. I just need to decide with what and how I’m going to set them.
I bought this fabric at Zook’s in Intercourse, PA when I was working a travel nurse assignment in Lancaster, PA back in 2002-2003. I bought several yards (?6?). I love this stuff and it was perfect for this pattern. It makes beautiful kaleidoscope blocks.
Want to see what the fabric looks like?
I’m planning to do a pieced sashing for the setting similar to the one the pattern shows…..it would surely help if I could locate my pattern but since I can’t, I drew the setting diagram in EQ7.
I have to be honest and say that in my view, this patterns illustrations/instructions leave a lot to be desired. Don’t be afraid to try one though. If you’ve ever done a Stack and Whack (Bethany Reynolds), then you can do this pattern too. I can’t elaborate any further on how to make it because I don’t want to infringe on their copyright. I would direct you to the page at HD Designs for this pattern but alas, there are no pictures of it???? I did find a shop where you can buy it and there’s a picture on this page:
I’ve already printed the fabric yardage and will check out some options at the quilt shop tomorrow (today, actually). I’ve got a perfect golden yellow Moda print but the tiny rosebuds are the wrong color. I’d love to be able to use that. I’ve also got a sage green Moda Marble that is a perfect match for the light green.
Here’s what my design wall looks like tonight:
Here’s a close-up of one of the blocks:
If I can just get the setting right, this is going to be a gorgeous quilt! Cross your fingers!
