A Four Squared Finish (week 6)


You cannot believe how excited I was last night just 5 minutes before my husband walked into the door from work, I knotted off the last thread for this project!  Oh my this project was a lesson at every corner.  After sewing together all the charm Squares for the last project involving the 'Lil Twister Tool  [see POST], I wanted to make a smaller projects without going with a  smaller tool.  I started this project about 2 years ago.  I never imagined this is how it would turn out, but I am so grateful to Leah Day's Tutorials and videos!  I used her method of joining the four separate mini-quilts into one 40"X 40" Project.  This marks my first finish for the 2013 Finish Along hosted by Leanne @She Can Quilt.

Four Squared Weekend:  back
I actually bought binding a couple of years ago from an Etsy Shop which is no longer in Business.  I hadn't actually planned out the quilt when I bought it however or I might have gone with something different, something Orange maybe.  All I knew at the time was that I had 4 packs of City Weekend Charm Squares by Moda and this binding should match.  There was a little less than a yard left of the binding.  I have decided to call it "Four Squared Weekend" and little corner bits were added to house a rod for hanging rather than the traditional sleeve.

I think I just might keep this one...
