    I started this just cause I like the looks of it. I got one block together and a few others cut out. It is a nice easy flow pattern. I’m not supposed to be starting anything new till I do a few ufo’s but couldn’t resist. I’ll do them as leaders/enders as I work the UFOs. That’ll be legal, right? LOL
    Thanks for the tutorial.


  2. Mary I just finished wrapping up my latest swap where we swapped scrappy 4-patches… and I’m going to share the link to this pattern with all of my ladies. I know several of them already have plans for theirs as this is a VERY Versatile unit that Bonnie Hunter uses often in her patterns…

    Can you believe that just a few weeks ago I had over 4,000 scrappy 4-patches across my guest bed? yep… 33 swappers! 🙂 and there are already plans to have an ongoing scrappy 4 patch swap for next year! 😛

    Love the dark colors mixed up within your pattern. I have new to me EQ and will hope to download your file. Thanks for sharing! Love from Texas! ~bonnie


  3. Love the scrappy look of this. I’ve made one with plain blocks where your HST’s are and I loved the way it looked. I’ve got some HST’s and this would be a perfect pattern for using some up. Thanks!!
