Four Patch Roulette



The quilt bug found me in April.  Unfortunately, I only had scrap strips at hand.  I decided to make four patch blocks and worry about design when I was reunited with my stash.  The project became a Double Irish Chain.  I threw 340 four patch blocks in a large bag and left selection to chance (for the most part :).  The blocks went together quickly - each block constructed from four 'four patch' blocks, five constant patches and four selected patches.  The top is over halfway constructed!

Lots of squares involved in this. A good scrappy look.

A double Irish Chain is high on the list of Quilts To Do Next. Love the scrappiness of yours.

I never realized this quilt was made with four patches - how clever you are! I think it's just delightful and scrappy is always my preferred kind of quilt. Great job!
