love the colors in this one....I'm thinking of using this pattern with tuscan colors...if I do it, I'll try to post a photo....thanks for the inspiration!!

This pattern is an interesting twist on the traditional granny square and not any more difficult. It's a great pattern to use up scraps too. The above colours, pictured are gorgeous in autumn shades, but would also look wonderful in winter holiday colours, like red and green or different shades of blue.
