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.

2½” Moda Candy 1½” (21) 4-patches
5″ Charm Pack 4½” (21) 4-patches
10″ Layer Cake® 9½” (21) 4-patches

  1. After the first cut, Couldn’t you just turn and restack, then sew Opposite 2 sides, and cut in half for the 4 square.

      Couldn’t you use a jelly roll ? sew down the strip and cut in 2.5 sq. turn and sew as many as you need?

      • Alice says:

        Yes, but this is for if you didn’t have a jelly roll and only had squares. 🙂
