APQ Quiltalong - Go Four It!!

 It is that time again for a quiltalong. 

As you may know last year I was fortunate enough to have one of my quilts featured as the first APQquiltalong. (see here) I am more than thrilled to be back this year with a few of my friends joining me. Edyta Sitar of Laundry Baskets Quilts and April Rosenthal of Prairie Grass patterns have both created 4 patch quilts, so the talented brains at APQ named this article, Go Four It!


Edyta Sitar, the queen of scrap has created this incredible quilt with the te-tiniest rainbow of prints and batiks.

April's version is just screaming summer picnic with 
a graphic layout.
 

It is kind of funny how this all came to happen and I wanted to share a bit of the back story. One of the editors at APQ, Elizabeth Tisenger sensed a trend of four patch quilt projects during her quilt submission process. 

Instead of choosing, she thought what the hey, each one is so different in size and construction, let's feature them all.



Look for the April issue on Newstands or your favorite store
February 3rd for the complete instructions on all 3 versions.



So now it is up to you to pick your favorite technique and design, choose your fabrics or use this project as a scrap buster and quiltalong with us.


Be sure and share your progress with us by using the #APQquiltalong.
I also have a pinterest board where I post as many pics as I can find across the world wide web.
