Proteus was a Greek water god, and Protean means changeable or many forms. So when we came up with this kinda-sorta-storm-at-sea-thing, Protean made sense. And you thought those SAT word quizzes weren't useful. Protean finishes at 21 ¾" square and uses a combination of traditional piecing and foundation paper piecing. Note: Make sure your printer settings DO NOT say fit to page or scale to fit. This may interfere with your block accuracy.
