4 patch

Been really busy the last week. But I did manage to finish quilting this quilt. I still need to put on the binding. The pattern was called 4 patch. It's 1 large half square triangle 2 smaller hst and 1 square. These blocks are 4 1/2" square. Half the blocks have a dark square and dark large hst and the other have a light square and large hst. The blocks are sewn into blocks of 4. With the large hst in the centers of the dark squared blocks. And the light squared blocks have the squares in the centers. Making secondary patterns. I think it's fun to try to find the pattern in quilts like this. Hope you understand my explanation of the piecing. It is a easy pattern once you get started. I used this quilt to clean out my blue scraps.
