Floating 4-Patch Fun


I viewed this tutorial on The Gourmet Quilter's blog and have been enjoying making these very simple blocks and using up my scraps for floating 4-patch blocks.  Very relaxing.
 Digging in the scrap bag is fun.  

I'm going to use them to make a quilt to donate.  I may or may not put in a sashing; not sure yet. Would they still be floating if there's sashing?
Hope you are enjoying your weekends.  
God Bless.

I love the fact that they are floating. Leave out the sashing. It looks so 'Modern.'

These are what I am making but in the much smaller size and much scrappier. I am thinking of making a row of 'floats' a row of scrap lites for some applique - alternate. I need to challenge myself to a needle turn quilt.

Gee, they look really great and no they probably wouldn't be floating with sashing. Love to see it finished. Take care.

I think they look great as they are. If you add sashing in the same fabric as the background, then they'd still float, but if you use a different colour you'd lose the effect I reckon.
