Hello! This is a mini tutorial for speedy four-patches. This method can be used for any sized squares. For this mini tutorial, I have used charm squares.
|STARTING SQUARE||PRE-CUT||4-PATCH SIZE||YIELD PER PKG|
|2½”||Moda Candy||1½”||(21) 4-patches|
|5″||Charm Pack||4½”||(21) 4-patches|
|10″||Layer Cake®||9½”||(21) 4-patches|
2 Moda Candy, Charm Pack, or Layer Cake® squares
*ingredients listed make 2 four-patch blocks
Place the fabric squares right sides together. Sew a ¼” seam along two opposite sides.
Cut in half (at 1¼” for Moda candy squares, 2½” for charm squares, 5″ for Layer Cake® squares)
Press to the dark side.
Cut in half again on the opposite direction.
Pin sets together and sew. Press.
Square up 4-patches to unfinished sizes listed.
Moda Candy yields 1½” unfinished 4-patches
Charm Pack yields 4½” unfinished 4-patches
Layer Cake® yields 9½” unfinished 4-patches
