Have you been bit by the 4 Patch Stacked Posie bug yet??

EDIT NOTE December 2012:  The Photo Hosting site I used "Webshots" is no longer in operation.  I do have a slide show ----->>>> over along the side and at this point it will have to do until I figure something else out.  I know a lot of folks looked at the album each week so I'll try and find another way to show them.

Since I haven't had much time for quilting myself... I may as well encourage as many others as I can. I just figured out how to add a slide show... so here ya go... 4 Patch Stacked Posies!

Advanced warning - don't watch these pictures if you have no self control because this has proven to be a contagious and addictive process.

4 Patch Stacked Posies are a pattern by HD Designs - I promise that you will look at fabric in a whole new way!

These pictures are in my Webshots Album - they are a collection of pictures of quilts - mine, my sisters, friends, and students. I taught 4 Patch Posie classes for more than a year at a quilt shop I worked at and have been amazed at the beautiful quilts that twirl into being. Enjoy!

4 Patch Stacked Posies

Update: Look at this 4PSP (4 Patch Stacked Posie) that Doodlebug Gail is working on... it's going to make a beautiful quilt - I just love florals! Can't wait to see it finished!

I can say I have only made one. Of course I have fabric to make about 8 more but we won't talk about that.


Cheryl said...

I have never made one of those!
Beautiful. So nice to find your blog :-)!

Cheryl said...

Opps - forgot to say I entered you in my drawing and thanks for visiting my blog!

Howdy said...

Dawn-Marie - I don't think I have a picture of the one you made... send me a pic and I'll add it to the album.

Cheryl - these are very addictive... not many folks can make just one! LOL

good slide show. I like the quilts. One day I will make one. I think I'll have to be locked up for two days in The Hood to get it pieced and another day or so at Dawn Maries to get it quilted.

WOW!! That many in one spot!!!
Cool show. I will send you more pic as I finish them- they are one of my favorite quilts to make... next to scrappy ones!

You have a great collection of pics...
Thanks for including mine.

Howdy - you're on "no reply" for comments when they arrive in my e-mail. I just wrote you a nice long reply in response to your comment on my Blog. Would you consider changing from "no reply" so that I can reply to your comments.

Love the slideshow .... you were the one who started all this and boy oh boy, you sure have a lot of inspiration in the slideshow for those who don't know about this pattern yet.

Take care,

Howdy said...

Hope that I've fixed that Gail - I'm never quite sure just what button to poke sometimes! LOL

Shan Marie said...

Rosalind said...

I love all the pictures you have. I have been making One Block Wonder quilts, and some of my early fabric choices may not work as well for OBWs as I thought, but would be great as 4PP. Your pictures have given me a lot of ideas on ways to set the blocks to get different looks.
Thank you,
