Simple Says It Best!

Simple Says It Best Square

SIMPLE SAYS IT BEST

I needed a really quick and easy closed weave square for some appliques and to use as solid color fillers in a blanket project.

I looked and looked and couldn't find exactly what I needed or wanted; so me being me and the designer that I am, I of course opted to make my own.
And of course I thought of all my Tangled Friends would probably like this pattern too, so I have written it out and am posting it here for all of you!

So without any further ado ... Drum roll please....
