    Wow, very dramatic coloring. Should make a wonderful baby or toddler girl quilt with matching doll quilt. That's what I would do with it.

    I just looked up images of 4-patch stacked posies on Google. It's a kaleidoscope block! This fabric will be fabulous. Can't wait to see the finished top.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Oh, I can't wait to see this done up in a 4 patch posey! I would never have thought to use that type of print. I have purchased some florals to make one but I think mine is going to look more formal. I like the whimsy of your material!

    Your fabric choice is excellent! The repeat is 12"...perfect! Looking forward to seeing the blocks. It is such a fun pattern and so easy once it's pinned.

    I love the 4 Patch Posy pattern but the bought pattern is horrible to follow. There are many tutorials on line that is much easier to follow.
    Got fabric?

    How big is the quilt you are making? How much material did you purchase?

    What size are you cutting the squares to make the blocks? I just bought some material yesterday to make the 4 patch posie and not sure what size I shoudl cut my squares to make the blocks.
    I bought the material at JoAnn's with a 50% off coupon---woo-hoo!!! They so often have their keepsake prints on sale for 10-30% off or $1 off a yd--that it is hard to ever get in on using the 40 or 50% coupons. I also had a coupon for an additional 10% off entire purchase of regular and sale items so I left with my 7 yards of material (that's what was left on the bolt) and a smile on my face!

    I think I'll do 4". My fabric has a pretty large print, so I don't want to cut it too small and miss a good variety of patterns.

    I was thinking 4 or 4 1/2" My LQS did a 4 patch posie a little different method. They stacked the 4 layers of identical fabric pieces and then cut big 9" squares and then cut those squares diagonally both ways and then had 4 different sets of blocks to lay together and each set made a big block that had 4 triangle cuts. It looked very nice--I thought the triangles made it look even more of the kaleisscope look. I think I am giong to cut 9" blocks but I am not sure yet if I am going to then cut them into 4 squares or 4 triangles. I have 7 yards of material so I might cut 2 different sets of 4 of 9" blocks and cut one set in squares and one set in triangels and see what I like the most. The thnk the squares would definitiely sew up quicker --and I am all about making quick simple quilts since my quilting time is so limited--so the 4 squares should be my answer to how I should cut them. My fabric has a larger print than yours. It doesn't really matter what size the finished blocks are--anything goes! I can't wait to see your finished blocks.
