Well I found a perfect pattern for it just by accident. I think some of you may remember me mentioning a really good and well known quilter who lives her on the Island, Angelika Monks, originally from Germany.

On my first patchwork class she gave me a pattern that she had put together for newbies but I didn't get around to making it then but I have some really new NEWBIES at present and this is a foolproof pattern for them, but oh so useful when you have a striking fabric.

Of the focal fabric cut 4.5" strip WOF (Width of Fabric)
Of the toning fabric cut 2 x 1.5"strips WOF

Sew, with 1/4" seams a 1.5 strip either side of the 4.5"

Press and cut 6.5" pieces of the strip, giving you 6.5" sqaures!

Rotate every other one 180 degrees and stitch together and this is what you get, I call it the Brick Pattern. :-)
