APQ Quilt Along Finish

The second pattern I chose for the APQ Go Four It Quilt Along was Buried Treasure by April Rosenthal.

This is April's quilt.
Here are  my blocks set exactly like the pattern.

But you can turn a few blocks here and there and also get this pattern if you prefer.

I found working on this pattern pure joy.  I love the colors (Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille for Moda) and learned from my last quilt that I prefer a plain white background. It was easy to piece, all the points and corners matched up perfectly, and it went together in no time.

I decided to stick with April's layout.

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 150
The pattern is Buried Treasure by April Rosenthal and is in the April 2015 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting.
The fabric is all Bonnie and Camille for Moda, mostly Scrumptious.
It finished at 64"x 64"
It has approximately 896 pieces.

My favorite daughter has dibs on both my APQ Go Four It Quilts, they are definitely her colors.  I also plan to make Edyta's pattern Scraptacular but am stumped on what fabric to use for the non 4 patch rows.  I'm going to wait and see what some of you come up with, hopefully that will help me get it right the first time.  Barb, from Me and My Sisters Designs, is making Scraptacular out of her latest line Bandana by Moda.  She is using a color palette that I love, and is working away on her 4 patches but has yet to reveal her solid row fabric, I'm eagerly watching.   If you spy a great Scraptacular be sure to let me know.


  1. Beautiful. So bright and springy. Looks like it might be a great stash buster too! :-)

  2. I think this quilt is spectacular and I love the other layout. I think I may have found my fabrics for the first quilt, and I love the Bandana fabrics so I may have to use those too!

  3. Your quilt is so beautiful! The fabrics are perfect for the pattern!

  4. It's beautiful, Thelma. I love a plain white background! :-)

  5. I really liked your first 4 patch quilt, but I like this one even more! And the bandana line looks like fun too!

  6. The colors are scrumptious! No wonder your daughter claimed it.

  7. love both of yours! Gee...I might have to make them all too!

    Have you seen Kathy Tracy's version of Edyta's? on IG it's kathy.tracy.quilts

  8. Just beautiful Thelma. Like you I have been using alot of Kona White for backgrounds on my quilts. It really makes the colors pop :-)

  9. are on a roll Thelma and love this on too! Happy colors and love the white background.....very crisp and sharp looking...;)))

  10. you are so fast! I love the alternate setting! Thanks Thelma!
