    Found this fabric on Thursday, and don't really need to do another quilt at the moment, but the material was yelling at me to buy it.- this is not my normal color scheme I like, but it really jumped out at me. repeat is 12" which one should I do?

    Either would be great. BTW do you have a pattern for the 4 patch posy? I have been looking and can't find one. Where did you get yours?

    I am working on a 4 patch posie and loved doing it. Haven't done OBW as of yet. The 4 patch seems to be easier.

    I like 4 patch posies and stack and whacks better than kaleidoscopes, but that's just my opinion, so I vote for 4 patch posy.

    Me too, your fabric looks like the perfect candidate for 4pp.

    Do you have enough fabric to sample a block of each? I love OBW, but IMO would do the posie 4 patch block.

    4 PATCH POSIE gets my vote. I am one of the strange ones that does not necessarily like OBW either. Most of the time they are too busy..

    I like to hear that the four patch is nicer. This helped me decide which to do.
