The pattern is called Disappearing Four Patch, as you start with a four patch, make a few cuts through the block, rearrange the pieces and re-sew it together. Quick and easy. Many thanks to Kathleen D for piecing the top and some extra blocks, to Jean K for adding one more row to bring it up to single bed
UPDATE, Feb.26: the goal of 50 quilts for Portage Atlantic has been surpassed!!
Also shown last night was another donation quilt which will be given to Family Enrichment and Counselling to be raffled. I sure hope Tracey brings in some tickets for us to purchase!
The Bali Pop was donated by Sue R, the top was pieced by Lois M and the quilting was done by Jean K. The block design is Half Log Cabin.
What a beauty! Well done, ladies!
