Its my favorite "go-to" pattern and its free from Bonnie Hunter. There are no diagonal seams, no background fabric. You can change up the color of the 4 patches--I've used black, brown, purple, blue, and red with a light. No scrap is too ugly to use! (Believe me, I've added some real unloved bricks!) Thank you Bonnie, I love to make this pattern.
The backing was a solid green---
The pattern is Alfresco by Hermione Agee. Its easy, soft, and hopefully not too girly. Had a trip down memory lane while trimming the top--the border fabric was a skirt for Laura Beth when she was about 10yo. She's 33yo, so that piece was 23 years old! Please see everyone's design wall posts at Patchwork Times.
