Textured 4-patch quilt tutorial

This is a quilt that explores texture in fabric. The quilt builds on the skills I acquired while doing my first textured quilt sampler.

This quilt has 16 x 10 1/2 in blocks.

Block type: 4-patch.

Block size: 10 1/2 inches.

Colour scheme: reds, greens and creams. The fabric manipulation is made in a cream fabric or ribbon.

The quilt is made with fabric scraps and ribbon and therefore the tutorial does not include exact fabric needs.

This quilt is in progress.
