Friday Night Sew In -D4P

Yesterday night I did my first D4P. I had seen them in Cathy's blog and they seemed so nice and easy.  So I got everything I needed, went to my little sewing room  and gave it a try.

I used some leftover 5"square from a charm pack

Sewed them all toghether

Cut the pieces one inch from the seams

Change the place of the small pieces and rotate the central square 180 degrees. After that you just have to sew everything back again.

And this is what your finished D4P looks like. Isn't it amazing!!! So easy and of great affect.

Of course I did some more just to get the hang of it...
Another one in blue

And why not red ones

Now I don't know if I'll make a pillow or make some more D4Ps and do a quilt!

 What do you think. Can you give me a help deciding?!!!

I had planned to make something else that uses our smallest scraps. Yesterday I ran out of time but I'll try to do it today and as soon as possible I'll show some photos.

Love the blocks ... I learned to do D9P a different way but I like your way too. I can not wait to try it.

I put you in my reader cause it looks like such a nice site.


Happy Quilting... Nonnie
