The In-Between-The-Others Quilt top

Trying something new today on a calm cool cloudy day before the big heat wave comes raging into New England. I've been working on Mary Johnson's Easy Double Four Patch http://www.maryquilts.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/Easy-Double-4-patch.pdf
as a leader/ender project while I was doing Evening Star Obsession. I finally got enough blocks put together to go 7 blocks by 9 blocks and lay them out on the driveway.
My quilt looks NOTHING like hers due to the all-scrappy nature of my four-patches, whereas hers was all in scrappy greens. But I kinda like mine too. It's like an ugly dog whose friendly; ya gotta love 'em!

Here's the side view of the same layout and the last picture is the whole thing piled up in order to ready to be sewn together:
My outdoor table is the hood of my 1989 Ford Mercury Marquis, and how about that classy tuna can pin tray? Hey, I do what works for me, LOL!!!

Your classy pin tray? 8-)) I have one similar, made into a well-used biscuit cutter, in the shape of a heart, from a cat food tin, from DH#1. 8-)) Good memories.

Some times the simplest of things are the best. I agree about your dog comparison/quilt. Thinking about each of the fabrics brings a lot of comfort. 8-)) But I don't think it's ugly at all.

I love this quilt! I love its simplicity - all 4-patches - and its complexity - both the primary and secondary patterns. I especially love that you used such a variety of fabrics. How large are the two sizes of squares?
