    For clarification--------------I use the term 9 patch to refer to any pattern that has a 3 main pieces by 3 main pieces pattern. And for 4 patch, any pattern that uses 4 main pieces by 4 main pieces. Each of those pieces may include more than just a couple pieces.

    In my files, even the beloved Charpenter's Wheel is listed as a 4 patch, since it can be done as 4 separate patches.

    There are a zillion things you can do. One of the best books I purchased (quite some time ago) was Triangles on a Roll: Old and new ways of using Half and Quarter Square triangles.

    Follow up on my comments on ways to use HST----------

    Once again, I am going to recommend my favorite, "go to" book for quilt designs. Wonderful source for the old standards. I've never gotten any positive response from posters here, but that's their loss. Quite a few copies of this book are available used from Amazon.

    I will warn you, this paperback book is one that the pages are glued to a spine. After laying the book open to copy pages, they tend to loosen from the spine. I use mine so much that I simply bought the page saver sheets and put all the pages into a loose leaf folder. Really does come in handy when needing a pattern copied or to show someone.

    GrannieAnnie,
    I'm so sorry you feel you've had no positive responses here on the board. I believe it happens that so often when someone agrees, they simply don't post. It's like the negatives about a business -- where you hear all the complaints but rarely the kudos if they are doing things right.

    Maggie Malone's book is a wonderful oldie but goodie, thanks for mentioning it.
    You can take these "spine bound" paperbacks to places like Kinkos and have them spiral bound or hole-punched for putting into a binder; makes these books easier to use.

    I like the one posted by Jan.

    GrannieAnnie, I just ordered the book you recommended from Amazon for $.99. They had them as low as $.01, but there was no description of the condition, so I sprung for the $.99 one. I'm sure I'll like it. As a relatively new quilter, I appreciate voices of experience.

    You can also have a book spiral-back bound at a copy center. Gina

    I like the one Jan posted, and this is another fave. It's called the Depression block, you can do it scrappy.

    Life got in the way of my starting the carpenter's wheel I was thinking of doing, already did one. Now I am going to do this Depression quilt. Everyone has been so very helpful.

    If people ignore a book like Maggie's, it's their loss, I'm sorry for them. I much prefer the page savers since it drag the pages around here then and yonder.

    But thank you for the comments.
