    I just took a class in this pattern. Actually this is my 2nd class with the same teacher. She had us get the pattern but we never opened it. LOVE this pattern! Patches made by the other ladies were all very pretty. PM me if you want help with the directions. They are really not hard if you do not look at the pattern directions!t!!!i

    Don't be afraid. This is so much fun. This is a sampling of the 50 I got out of my repeats. They are 8" blocks unfinished. After laying all of them out I only found two sets that are similar but not identical. So I have actually 48 entirely different blocks and 2 close tos. They may go on the back.

    The 4PP certainly looks like it would be fun to do, and a lot less hassle than trying to get 6 or 8 repeats perfectly cut! I very much like the quilts everyone here has made!

    Another experiment for my to-do list... Thank you!

    The 4 patch posy is a very easy pattern but more time consuming than simply cutting 4 patches. The layers have to match up, then cut.

    These are super fun. Bethany Reynolds has videos on how to cut and stack the fabrics... 4 layers for this one. Then cut strips and cross cut them into squares. It's as simple as that!

    You put the same corner of all 4 repeats towards the center to make them appear like a kaliedoscope.

    Please don't give up. I taught myself by using youtube videos and then bought the book by Bethany Reynolds. S&W are my favorites. Once you reassemble the four smaller squares, you have a larger square that could be put in any pattern where a square is called for, like the middle of stars, etc. Four-patch triangles can be used in pinwheels that give the neatest effect. Also, if you don't like the way a square looks, you can keep turning them quarter turns and have a completely different look. Just make sure you get all of them the same way (ask how I know). You can use as alternating blocks with log cabins, etc. There is so much variation and I have seen some astonishing ones posted on here. The part I haven't ever totally figured out are the stacks mentioned in the book. But I just make up my own and go from there. Please keep trying to "get it." You can do this!

    I have that pattern. Took a class several years ago at LQS and enjoyed it. Glad she was there to explain how to do it and what to look for when buying the fabric. It is time consuming but the results are beautiful, with the right piece of fabric. I want to do another quilt with this pattern but just never seem to find the time.
