summer 2 x 4

Earlier this summer I pulled out this stack of fabrics that included a bunch of neutrals with some pops of color – hot pinks, bright yellow, a bit of peachy orange and a few shades of blue.

I had plans to make something else with those fabrics, but the blocks took far too long to complete and I really needed something faster.

(look at this cute house! it has me wanting to make another string quilt!)

So of course I immediately thought of my 2 x 4 pattern! It’s a super quick one, yet still fun and satisfying to put together. As an added bonus, I think it looks wonderful with any and all fabric combos!

Interestingly enough, despite making many quilt tops in this pattern, I have yet to actually complete one! Maybe this one will be the one!
