Meet Scott Flanagan!

Scott Flanagan began his quilting journey with roots tracing back to childhood days spent sewing alongside his grandmother, at age 7. From these creative beginnings, he founded 4th and Main Designs in 2011.

Since its inception, 4th and Main Designs has been a beacon of creativity and innovation in the quilting community. Scott's patterns have graced the pages of esteemed publications such as Quiltmaker, McCalls Quilting, and Fons & Porter magazines, earning him a reputation for excellence and craftsmanship.

Embedded within Scott's work are two guiding principles that shape his approach to quilting:

A quilt is only hard if you've been told it's hard beforehand. With this belief at the core, Scott strives to write patterns that are accessible to quilters of all skill levels. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a confident beginner, Scott's patterns are crafted with clarity and precision, ensuring that every quilter can embark on their own creative journey with confidence.

You learn some of the best lessons from the mistakes made along the quilting journey. Embracing imperfection as an essential part of the creative process, Scott encourages quilters to view mistakes as opportunities for growth and learning. Through trial and error, we refine our skills and deepen our appreciation for the artistry of quilting.

At 4th and Main Designs, Scott's mission is clear: to inspire and empower quilters to explore the endless possibilities of their craft. Every pattern is a testament to his dedication to excellence, with meticulous attention to detail and a commitment to fostering a community of creativity and collaboration.

Among Scott's most popular patterns are several standout designs, some of our favorites are:


The modern yet inviting southwestern vibe adds a touch of warmth and charm to any space, making it a perfect choice for creating a welcoming atmosphere. Scott's clever use of assorted precut 2 1/2" strips infuses the quilt with character and depth. With a bundle or two of your favorite strips, you'll soon be stitching together a quilt that radiates warmth and comfort, making it the perfect addition to any home.
