The Good Side of a Rainy Day

There is a positive side to a rainy day. 

I worked on my scrappy four patch units.

And I used my featherweight to do it.

I like the scrappy four patches that are made using the 5" square method of construction. 

Here's what 440 - 4" four patch blocks look like. As you can see, they've not all been pressed open yet, but I think you get the idea.

These four patches will be used to make a larger version of this quilt. 

And then when the rain stops we saw a beautiful double rainbow. You have to look hard to see the one on top, but it was there.

  And this was kind of cool to see.

I'm tired of the rain, but happy to have had the opportunity to be productive.

Great pics and blocks on a rainy day. I have never heard of four patches that are made using the 5" square method of construction. Where can I find more info on this? It sounds interesting. I looked to see if you had a tutorial and did not see one. Thanks for tweaking my curiosity.
