    Thank-you so much for sharing. I’m going to bookmark your site for future reference, and for now, I’ve downloaded the PDF for the double 4 square. I can’t wait to use up some of my stash. I’ll post a picture if I ever get it finished. I was going to get help for my procrastinating once by going to PA meetings. (that`s Procrastintors Annonymos) But the first time I went there was a notice on the door that the meeting had been postponed! I never went back. Pray for me!

  • Roberta:

    This green is so beautiful. I think I love this pattern and color pallet.

  • Pam Smythe:

    I too want to thank you for these beautiful quilts and wonderful instructions. It gives me a place to browse and dream of my next project. I’m a new quilter and I spend a lot of time planning.

  • THey are certainly both beautiful. I am partial to the red one since I am currently working on 2 pieces that will be red and tan. I like the way the smaller squares connect up and chain across the quilt. It’s a dramatic design.

  • Oh my what a neat learn as you go site how grand of you to share you knowledge with us It has been quite the treat looking at all of this site Hugs Katherine
