    Question Disappearing 4 patch

    Usually a disappearing 4 patch block consists of only two different fabrics. Like one print and one solid. Do you think it would work with four different prints?

    Sure it will, just make sure there is enough contrast in colour or value for the pattern to show up.

    Like the one with black. It gives more contrast.

    Very cute. My eye is drawn to the black/blue block. Please show the finished quilt. BrendaK

    Thank you.
    I have 12 assorted in this print. My question is .. Is two prints better or do you think four prints in one block is ok?

    I have seen it make with a charm pack and that has a lot of different fabric in it, so yes I think it would look great...try it and see how you like it and go from there... good luck
