4-Patch Twist Update

It’s still in progress but here’s a shot of the bed runner quilt I’m working on:

Olivia Twist 1
Dawn’s Variation on 4-Patch Wonder with a Twist

Can you believe all the blocks came from the same focus fabric? I never tire of making these faux-kaleidoscope blocks. It’s so much fun to see the amazing variety of images created by stacking four repeats and cutting them into squares. For more information on the fabrics I used and the two simple blocks that created the interlocking twist design, see my previous post.

Right now my quilt top measures 34½” x 68″ but it’s going to be a little bit longer because I want more of a drop over the sides of the bed. I haven’t decided yet whether to simply add strips of background fabric to the short ends or incorporate a pieced element with color.

Hmmm. Maybe I should sleep on it.

    “sleep on it” ~~ that’s a good one! Love what you have so far. My sister has me making a bed runner for my niece, but much, much simpler.

    Your bed runner is stunning. Whatever you decide regarding adding length will be the perfect solution. Happy New Year!

      Thank you, Linda! This particular pattern is my own, 4-Patch Wonder with a Twist. The twist block is actually an old one dating back to the 1870s. I combined it with a 4-Patch Wonder block (my name for a four-patch kaleidoscope block).
