    OK ... I'll confess, I just couldn't wait and after all the discussion today about this pattern ... I dug thru my stash to find a piece with four repeats. And went at it tonight.

    I'm in awe and wish I had more of the fabric. The flowers were not huge, so I kept my squares smallish at only 2-1/2" each.

    I'm not using a pattern ... just went with what everyone has been talking about.

    That is beautiful! The black background really makes it pop. Are you going to use black for sashing?

    Your blocks are amazing. I spent 3 hours one night auditioning fabrics from my stash for 4pp and snw with a folding mirror, I had so much fun, I almost felt like I had made the blocks!

    WOW those look fantastic. I don't think I have ever seen a 4 patch posey that I did not like.

    The stack and whack type quilts are so much fun. Yours is going to be very pretty.

    And so the obsession begins... so innocently. And then you're hooked. LOL!

    I made several of these and all different size blocks, and all different settings. If the pattern was gigantic, I cut bigger squares to begin with. I used 2" cuts, 2 1/2', and even 4" cuts. The size of the cuts really depended on my fabric.

    Isn't it great how we share and inspire each other? Love them all.

    I have made a few 4-patch posies quilts. Yours is wonderful!! I am inspired to pull out some fabric and make another lap quilt.
    Thanks!

    Please tell me how a stack and whack works. I am such a newbie it's pitiful :-). I seem to have more questions than advice to this forum. I do appreciate everyones kindness and patience with my question. There will be so many more.

    SJoy ... you've summed up my first week here as a Newbie. I'm totally hooked ... on this Board and on 4PPS and OBW, and my brain has overfloweth with all the ideas, stimulation and inspiration. Not that I was lacking on the ideas part before ... but the stimulation and inspiration is more than dangerous for me!!! I DO have other things I MUST do!!! :)



    All ... I just HAD to get at it! And couldn't wait to try it out and took the first piece I found in my stash that I thought may work. It didn't even have the full 4 repeats, about 3-1/2, only about a metre. I've kept about ten inches along the selvedge left, as I wanted to be sure to have some to show the original fabric. Maybe setting squares? Borders? Not sure!

    The pattern wasn't overly big, so I figured I'd better keep the square size down to 2-1/2", or I wouldn't get the kaleidoscope effects.

    I just stuck them up on my design wall as I went, and that's what you see. I'm not sure on the sashing yet ... my eyes were too bleary by the time I got to that point! I'm not a big fan of black and I have been thinking about purple (that'd be blackish, right?) or a green? or ??

    Please post thoughts and suggestions!!
