    Does anyone have a link to a 4 patch posey tutorial? I did search and tutorials and found one link but it is no longer active. I found lots of photos, but nothing that tells how to do it. I found lots of how to do the other stack and whacks but not the 4 patches.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance. Smiles and hugggggs

    Im sorry I cant help :( The links I found were broken as well but Im sure SOMEONE knows of something hidden away somewhere. That is one of the best things about this board the abundance of info at your fingertips. Good luck!!

    Choosing the fabric and how to cut and lay it out in repeats was covered in cutebuns class here on the board. She was teaching OBW's, but the technique is the same. You will be working with 4 repeats instead of 6 is the only difference.

    Fabric choices

    Cutting the fabric repeats

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-35685-1.htm

    When you have your 4 repeats cut and stacked as shown in the second link, you would cut your blocks out of these strips, and then cut each of the blocks corner to corner. Pick up one stack of these cut pieces and arrange it into a posey block. Each block cut into 1/4's will make 4 posey blocks.

    The Stacked Posies pattern is easy to understand.

    And it's on sale for $2.50 here:

    Shipping charges are estimates. Actual charges will be used when order is shipped. Delivery times may vary. All postage rates will be actual postage plus $1.00 for delivery confirmation and handling.
    Therefore the rates posted on your invoice may not be the exact amount.

    This isn't posted until further on in the ordering process. Or if you click on a button that is there that no one notices. Stupid on their end if you ask me. You'd think anyone doing online selling would have enough sense to know once a buyer see that amount for mailing an envelope, they stop right there.


    The total cost will be $5.50. That's what I was charged. Still more then the pattern but 1/2 what the pattern is selling for elsewhere. Once a pattern is discounted at one place it usually is at other stores too.

    I just filled out the order form, and I would also be charged $6.95 for shipping... Even though it says the shipping charges are an estimate, I will not give up my cash until I know what the full charges will be... estimates can go up or down..... and they don't give you the exact amount until you give them your cc information :roll:

    I can't afford that kind of shipping charges. But I appreciate the effort put into finding the pattern for me!

    I sure will, as soon as I get brave enough to start cutting. LOL, I really love the fabric and don't want to ruin it.

    Wildyard.....if you type in "4 patch posy" in the search option above, there are several discussions which might be helpful. Hope you have fun with this. It is on my "to do" list, but that list is soooo long! It sure is a nice pattern.

    Is this one any help to you? The site of the tutorial seems to have been removed from the internet... it's not even in the cache. http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/blog/?p=341
    Hope you find what you're looking for.
