4 Patch Posie - Hawaiin Style

At Road to California this year, I picked up this beautiful  fabric from Beyond the Reef.  What to do, what to do?  

I was at an EZQ meeting last month and my friend Sharon did a 4-patch posie and convinced me that it was much easier than stack and whack.  

and she was right!  The blocks only took me a couple of hours.  The setting again a couple of hours.  

It so fun to see how different each block turns out.

I a making this one for my Aunt Debbie.  Will probably quilt it with lt blue and grey thread.

That's all for now!
Hope you get to sew this week!

  1. What did you do differently from the stack and whack?

  2. Hi Marjie, Its basically the same, except that there are only 4 layers and they are squares. You can turn each "stack" four different ways to get the best option. Super fun, you gotta try it!

  3. Sounds like a very cool pattern, the stack and whack takes so much work to line And this print made fabulous blocks!

  4. It looks really lovely and turned out great! Such a good idea to make it from squares.


I would love to hear from you
