Inspiration from Patchwork Quilt Designs

When I come to end of one project, there is always a sense of excitement that I can start a new one. Yes, I am one of those really annoying people who are very strict about having ONE project on the go at any time. I have to stick to my rules otherwise I would never finish anything! But sometimes when the time comes to start a new project my head is buzzing with all sorts of ideas, and it can take a while to really crack on and make a sample and see if works.

For this project I have used the technique that was used for my Rainforest Patchwork Squares and my Violet blanket.

The inspiration for this project came from modern quilt designs, particularly the disappearing 4-square designs. I decided to make 4 differently configured squares, which I will later come to join to form a larger square. My basic design was as follows:

My 4 square designs

I then joined the squares in groups of 4 and then edged the group in a darker colour.

More details on this pattern is coming soon.
