As you can see, I placed a focus fabric square in the middle and then lined the rest of the focus squares side by side, filling in with the four patches.
Pretty purple beach themed focus fabric with coordinating print/solids and then a gingham backing.
After stitching together the provided strips to cut the sections from for the four patches, I saved two sections out and then sewed the top together in columns, placing the two extra sections above and below the center square. The rest were sewn into four patches as the pattern instructs. Since this photo I've got the rows all sewn together. What do you think of my design?
