Cheating (15)

Having completed the 4patch blocks for my Strawberry Crush quilt - and a few over - I really wasn't happy with them. I absolutely LOVE the main fabrics I have chosen, and decided it would be a pity not to be absolutely certain about the rest of it. So I went to my local quilt store this morning and picked up loads of their scrappy bits and couple of FQs that are just the right colours. I made about half of them up this afternoon, and will finish them off in the next couple of days. I'll post a picture once they're all finished. So that leaves me with loads of 4patch blocks to play with - along with the others I have made out of leaders and enders. I can see the beginnings of my first charity donation quilts there.

I made Delia Smith's Cheat version of Pasta Puttanesca for supper and very good it was - long live cheating!

There are so many options for using up 'spare' 4 patches, the hardest part is choosing a pattern :)
