My Penny Patch Quilt

I decided I wanted to join in on the Penny Patch Quilt Along...but I knew going in that there was absolutely no way that I was going to stick to their schedule...it was just too close to the holidays when I found it! So I started by choosing my fabric for it.



Then they sat and waited....and waited....and waited...It was killing me!!

I finally had some time recently to get started! So I cut into these beauties and started making piles!



I changed the pattern a little bit from how they did it in the quilt along. In her original quilt (Vintage Tangerine) She had plain four patches as well as the penny patches and I decided that I liked that better. You know what that meant though? Yah...quilt math...bleck! I survived it though! And here are my cute little four patches!




Next came the penny patches! Of course there are piles!


Next step will be to start laying it all out and figure out where it all goes! But since I have two quilts for other people that get priority it's on a back burner for a bit. I like to look at the blocks waiting for me though!

Linking up to Wip Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced!

  3. I like the colors your picked, but what a job that must have been. This is going to be one of those quilts that makes you smile when you se it or are wrapped up in it. A real “comfort food” type of quilt.
