A Finished Quilt: Connect Four

Remember earlier this week I told you I was tackling the Connect Four quilt that was suppose to be done for a summer wedding….well I powered through loosing it, finding it and the dreaded machine quilting problem I told you about last night.  (If you missed that, the story is here.)

Here it is FINISHED!!

Connect-Four-Quilt-11

The pattern is Connect Four and it’s from our book Country Girl Modern.  I have made this quilt three times and still I am in love with it.  It uses two charm packs and is such an easy, quick project to make.  I am absolutely certain I’ll be making another one sometime.  I think it’s become my “Oh crap I need something quick” quilt pattern.

I love any opportunity to machine quilt boxes.  It’s one of my favorite designs.  I can do it quicker than a basic stipple.

Here is the promised photo of the repair I have to do to add backing fabric while the quilt was on the frame.

All in all I am very happy with the quilt.  None would know if I didn’t tell that it was a screw up…I guess all it well that ends well, right??

I am off to package this up.  I am hoping it can go in the mail soon.  I’m already four months late so it doesn’t really make a difference but I would like it done..and until it’s mailed, it’s not DONE!

I you are interested in the pattern it’s in our book Country Girl Modern.  Here’s a link to our sales page where you can learn more about getting your own autographed copy.
