Scrappy Four-patch blocks

February 1, 2013
It's been a busy week!  Last weekend - shovelled snow then Monday had to do it all over again.  Missed my friends on Monday because the last time we had snow like that, we build a snowman in the middle of the road - just a little surprise for the snowplow driver!  (a friend)
All that is to say that it's been a week of snow shoveling (Tuesday and Wednesday brought mild weather, but that just meant that the snow build up slowly slid off our steel roof, so that gave me the job of shoveling off the deck!) with sewing here and there.
Step 2 of our club's current mystery quilt was to make about 230 2 3/4" four-patch blocks.  Since I chose to make this quilt completely scrappy, I had cut up 460 coloured squares so that meant sewing each onto a white strip, then cutting, trimming and sewing together the pairs - much different than the efficient Fons and Porter method of making four-patch blocks that I usually use.
