Four patches are one of the most useful building blocks of quilting! They can be combined with nearly any other building block and also look fantastic on their own. This speedy method makes two four-patches at one time.
2 contrasting Charm squares
Place Charm squares right sides together. Sew a scant 1/4″ seam from each of two opposite sides.
Cut apart at the center – 2″ from either seam.
Press units towards the darker fabric.
Once you cut in half and press, you will have two lovely sets of 4-patch blocks!
Square up 4-patches to 4½”.
