Midweek Makers #97

Welcome to Midweek Makers #97 - getting closer to 100!

Not only will that be a special occasion, but today's post is too, as it marks QuiltFabrication's 700th post! A seriously mind boggling number from almost 5 years of blogging. Guess I do really love to talk about quilting - and thank you all for listening!

Ok, enough of the milestones - now on to the sharing.
I've gotten a start working on creating 4 1/2" four patches from charm squares.

Scrap Happy four patch units

I need to make more before I decide on the final grouping of 16. But I've come up with a creative way to distribute the variety within the four patches - tutorial coming soon!

And did you notice last week had numerous star related quilts - let's take a look back:

Tish in Wonderland


Quilts, Etc

de Jong Dream House


Katie Mae Quilts


Chopin - A Passionate Quilter


Yellow Cat Quilt Designs


Quite the variety, don't you think? And for the above star crossed quilters, grab the special 'Featured' button below!

  1. Hi Susan,
    I look forward to hearing how you distribute the different fabrics throughout the quilt. I always have issues with that and some end up close to each other. I love all the star quilts - one of my favorite patterns. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. I love star quilts - thanks for sharing mine

  3. I guess we were all really seeing stars last week :) Congrats on post 700! That's a huge deal! I look forward to your tutorial. Sometimes it can be a struggle to make sure you get fabrics distributed evenly through out a quilt. Scrappy doesn't always come easy :)

    1. Thanks on 700 - I just happened to notice on Monday.
      And yes, sometimes scrappy doesn't come easy, but as I was told once in a 'scrappy' class, don't over-think it.

  4. Congrats on 700! Wow, you are proficient! Thanks for sharing your journey and joy of quilting with us :-)
