    I'm finally getting around to trying the D4P block. I Started with two bright fabrics in my stash. I Only had enough for 5 blocks, so I figured I would use four blocks as a center, and just keep adding borders. I continued using brights from my stash, as it will eventually end up with a child when I am ready to donate it. I would use the 5th block on the back. The color in the pictures isn't quite as wonderful as in person, darn it! But you get the general idea. At a certain point I ran low on coordinating brights, so I did buy a couple more fabrics to finish it up. There are hardly any florals in the top, so it's not girly, just youthful. I finished the top, and started working on the back. Amazingly, I still had quite a bit of the same fabrics leftover from the top, including the piano key border strips. I lacked just enough fabric that the back isn't the same exact square size as the top, so if I use it, I will have to lose some of the piano key border of the top, and it hurts to think about that! I laid the back out on the floor, and decided I like it too much for it to be a back! So now I have two tops to donate, and I won't have to trim the piano key border on the top after all. My next problem, of course, is that I need to find something to use for the backs!
