A good friend is retiring near the beginning of September so I dug into my green bag of 5-inch squares and made her a throw. Then last week when I was visiting my mom, she handed me a stack of 8-inch squares and asked me to see what I could do with them. They were Christmas flannel prints and solids. I decided to try a jumbo 4 patch. It will probably become a gift for someone once I decide who gets what for Christmas. What a useful pattern this is!
