Tiny foursomes from The Academic Quilter

Hi everyone, and thank goodness it's Friday!  I could not wait for this week to be over.  I spent a good bit of it with a really terrible migraine, the kind where all you can really do is lie down in a dark room and whimper.  Sadly, few people can take that option for very long, so I actually had to try to *do things.*  I was unsuccessful at most of it.

Thankfully, my head is mostly better now, and it's the weekend, so I can just kind of rest and try to catch up.  Obviously I got ...

Grinding through the units from Art In Search

     The four patch HST floral quilt that I showed a block of previously has lots of component units- a 4 patch all floral, a 4 patch floral/background combo, HSTs with black and background, HSTs with black and inside light print. A lot of small unit assembly.

A few blocks............. from Exuberant Color

I was gone all morning yesterday and when I got home I needed to bake a requested treat for a family member.  Late in the day I got some 3" strips cut to make a couple more 16 patch blocks.
These are the bonus 4 patches made with the remainder of the strips.  Three of these fabrics are older Kaffe's and the wild one is a newer one.

There are still some batik fabric packs left in my pop-up shop as well as other items.  The shop will close midnight EST Sunday.

I found it!............ from Exuberant Color

Off and on last week I was looking for the box with the Kaffe triangles in it and yesterday I found it!  Back in 2010 before I had a die cutter I rotary cut 6.5" squares and cut them in half diagonally.  I made at least 3 quilt tops (2 of them were sold) and I knew there were some leftover triangles.
It is hard to cut the squares exactly on the diagonal so there was always a little variance in the size of the triangles.  I decided to take the leftovers to my Studio die cutter and cut ...
