Changing The Plan Lady Judith?

Lady Judith attended one of the first Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope workshops... about three and a half years ago? She made a few blocks at the time but, as she was a beginner, she found they were a little tricky to stitch accurately, so set them to one side... and then, sure enough, Judith forgot about them... as we do. 
Now, I think I've mentioned before, Judith is now the proud owner of a brand new Juki sewing machine. She's finding accuracy much easier to achieve with her new toy. She dug out her Stack-n-Whack blocks, brought them to me for a little reminder and proceded to finish them all. 16 lovely and brightly coloured blocks.You can see one in the top right of this picture. 

Of course, Judith being Lady Judith... doesn't make small quilts and, even though she has 16 lovely 12" blocks... she wanted more. Left with only 4 pattern repeats worth of the fabric (Ricky Timms from Moda) though, we couldn't really make more of the same blocks so I had to come up with a cunning plan... Oh My goodness.... 4-Patch Posies!! very bright and happy posies they are too. They only need four pattern repeats and they are so much fun to put together! Who knows what layout we will use once all the blocks are complete... watch this space as I'm sure the quilt will be fabulous and... enormous!! Judith loves enormous...
