Debut # 3
I recently put the finishing touches on 16 quilts. Rather than sharing all sixteen at once I’ve been divulging them one by one. This is the third entry. Links to the first two can be found here: AQ # 17: The Chosen Nine and AQ # 18: Four Friends # 1. The quilt behind the camera today is Art Quilt # 19: Four Friends # 2.
In my last post I revealed Four Friends # 1. Four Friends # 1 is the fraternal twin to this mini quilt. They both came from the same set of eight reconfigured blocks. Instead of designing one quilt encompassing all eight I chose to divide them into two groups. I thought the two smaller pieces looked prettier than they did when all eight were together.
Four Friends # 2 is fairly small measuring only 13 1/2″ x 13 1/2″. The harvested blocks were left as is. The only thing I did was carefully press them. All four were stitched together and sandwiched with a layer of Warm & Natural batting and a backing of white cotton fabric. The top was quilted on my Pfaff sewing machine using a straight line motif. Any excess fabric around the outer edges was removed and replaced with a set of facings. In no time I had another quilt all finished and ready for its debut.
With no further explanation needed let me present Art Quilt # 19: Four Friends # 2!
Thank you for sharing your time by visiting. I am so glad you stopped by!

Interesting directionals. I don’t know which of the two I like better, only that I like them both. Thanks for sharing what you did.
You are very welcome! 🙂
You stay busy!
So what made these four different from the first #1 set of four? Why did you group them this way . . . inquiring minds want and need to know. ~smile~ Roseanne
I saw similarity in colors. These four looked great together. I didn’t like how the eight looked together.
Cindy – that’s what I thought when I looked at them and compared the earlier #1. I just wondered if it was your same thoughts. At least we agree – HAHA. ~smile~ Roseanne
Thanks for the question! It appears you actually read my post and thought about what you were reading. I’m impressed! Way to go! You get a gold star! 😊
Yeah, an overachiever . . . can’t help myself. ~smile~ Roseanne
I’m learning that about you! 😊
I wanted two small quilts not one of eight. How’s that? 😊
Makes perfect sense! 😉
