    They look great. They sure don't look all that quick.

    Hi nwm 50 - I think this would work with any size blocks. Looks like this one may have 6" squares.
    Just pick two contrasting fabrics, a dark and a light. You will cut an equal number of equal size squares from each fabric.
    Then lay them out so that you have a four patch unit (4 pieces of fabric) with the darker colors on opposite corners of the lighter colors. Sew the top two in your foursquare together. Sew your bottom two together. Then sew the two rectangles together. This makes one block. You can make as many blocks as you need.
    I hope this is not too confusing.
    ;) :D

    To JennyPenny: I think that I understand what you're saying but i will try this weekend. Thanks for helping me out, so i lay them out as 1 block of 4 peices and then attached the next block alongside of it and so on, until the next row and so on as the 1st row?? Duh..hope i didn't confuse u? :roll:

    I had to look at the pattern closely to see how you made up the 4 patch blocks. Very nice.

    the scrubs place advertises in the back of quilting magazines. my mom noticed the ad, got some, then i did. their name is HICE, i haven't ordered any in about 4 yrs, because i just really overdid it for a while. the matarial was so pretty. 1-800-752-4927 is phone #. at the time it was $25 for a huge box. like a foot and half square, and 4 ft tall. plus shipping by ups. it was $25 to michigan.
    here's another one----each side of the box was 1 1/2 foot.+the box was 4 ft. long.

    yes, they do. the girls just wash and wash them. just a tiny bit of fading after years. it's a poly/cotton blend, but feels like cotton.
