I'm making this for my grand-nephew who is in his early twenties, and struggling with mental illness. I was advised to not make anything too fancy as "you never know what may happen" to the quilt once he receives it.
I had played around earlier with some different ideas for the four-patches, which ultimately went together side-by-side in the interior that you see above.
I thought I could use up the rest of that blue Connecting Threads print, but somehow these arrangements seemed too... I don't know, juvenile or something. Plus, I really wanted to make more of a dent in my stacks of plaids.
Meanwhile, I've been monkeying around with my Farmers Wife blocks, and so far I'm liking this type of an arrangement.
This will surely evolve further. Meanwhile I need to make more blocks. Some of these won't make the cut. Others belong to a different project, but I used them to fill in just to get an idea of the setting. Don't look to see this finished any time soon.
I hope everyone had a nice Easter! We bbq'ed turkey burgers.
