Tiddly Winks

Today I decided to catch up to date on the 365 day challenge. These blocks are 3.5 inches unfinished. This reminds me a bit of working on Dear Jane...that feeling of going into the kitchen to make a single appetizer.

At the same time, I was piecing together four patches for the Idaho Square Dance quilt. For the center part of the quilt, I will need roughly 200 four patch units. I'm more than half way there. That said, I do feel like I played in a Tiddly Wink competition all day.

The strip on the side is the fabric that I am adding that matches one of the fabrics that Bonnie Hunter has in her version. I bought the fabric in the 80s from Mary Ellen Hopkin's shop Crazy Ladies and Friends. For some reason, I think its from VIP, but there is no printing on the selvedge.


  1. Such vibrant colours and pretty fabrics. You have a knack for putting them together!

  2. I hadn't thought of four patches as tiddly winks, but I will from now on...
