At Dorothy's beach house, she has one room with 2 twins. What to do with those Hawaiian prints? 8 inch Four Patches--also known as Freedom or Kings Ransom. The 8 inch size is big enough to show off the prints. The Four Patch helps tame the busy nature of these prints.
Dorothy's twin spreads are made 5 blocks by 6 long. It is easy to figure yardage if you change the size of your quilt with this pattern. One fat quarter (or regular quarter) equals one 15" block--with some pieces left for the border.
This trip was the first time I had seen them on the beds in this room. Sounds silly, but they took my breath away when I opened the door and saw them. They are just great in this room.
