I bought a kit of aboriginal fabric and backing. However after I cut out all pieces and made some of the sub units I hated it. What to do?  I decided to use it all to make “car quilts” for use at sporting events and other outdoor events. I used the backing fabric (tan) with the large blocks for 2 quilts. Then I used 4 1/2” blocks alternation with black solid for 2 more quilts. The last quilt was made with the four patch unit alternating with solid black. I finished quilting all but the four patch unit. And yes there is a mistake in that quilt that I am leaving in place. I had the units on my wall as the Kincade fire started . I needed to take it down quickly when we add 8 more people, 3 large dogs and 1 shy cat to our household. When I recently sewed the rows together and pin basted the quilt I found the error. I decided to leave to remind me of the crazy time.
