    Here is a suggestion for your new fabrics. It is one of my favorite patterns. I have made it about 6 or 7 times. You can make the squares any size you like, AND it is easy. I usually make them about 3 inches. I call it Four Patch Surrounded. It only takes four squares of each color, but you can repeat them if you like. I have many times.

    Did you do them all squares or do bigger pieces where there would be say three squares of blue in a row?

    Wow! Looks like several people are thinking about doing this.

    To Grammo013 and KO24, I got it from QuiltersCasche (sp) Also known as Quilt Blocks Galore. She calls it Planned Patch Hood. I changed it slightly. It calls for one more square of each color to "push" into the next block. I had one block laid out in front of me and thought it looked good that way. It is very easy.

    To Peabee and Sewaholic, it is 4 little squares of each color. I like so much that you can make them whatever size that pleases you.

    What a nice looking quilt.
    One of my friends has just about finished hers using this pattern, she collected all kind of poka-dots and it's wild! Bright and so attractive. The great accomplishment is, she is almost blind. One of the lady's in our group made her some flanel boards 10 X 10" and she arranged all the blocks that needed to be sewing together on the boards and then numbered them and stacked them for her. Great idea!

    Love your quilt!

    I think yours is so much easier, The other way though it looks good uses too much brain power.
    Thanks for sharing your clever idea.

    Yes, it does look a bit like Tetris. Wonder if I could do one with some of the other shapes in it.........

    Thank-you for this great scrappy pattern. I try to provide my guild members with easy patterns for our Community Quilts and this one is great. I have a large bin of tiny older prints and this pattern will work so well. It's raining here, so this is the perfect day to try this out.
