Four Patch Blocks Lap Quilt

This is an old fashioned pattern with the 4-patch blocks laid out on point and then sewn in strips with a large strip between the rows. There may be a name for the block layout but I haven't been able to find it.

This quilt called for "vintage" fabrics which I pulled out from my stash (yeah its hard to get rid of any fabrics). I machine quilted free form stars and moons in the 4-patch blocks. And a zig zag down the full strips. I washed and dried it on hot to get it nice and puffy.

As soon as I lay a quilt on the floor to take a picture of it one of my dogs thinks that must mean it's play time! So of course we play fetch for awhile.
