I’m sure at this point you are all frantically trying to piece your top for the ‘My Favorite Block Quilt Along’ Quilt and you may want some easy peasy 6.5” filler blocks that still look cool. Well – what’s cooler than the Classic Four Patch? Especially when you know the easiest-peasiest way to put it together!
Cutting Instructions (this will result in two four patch blocks)
Fabric 2 – 7.0” square
Place your fabrics right sides together.
Sew a quarter inch seam on opposite sides of the fabric.
Cut the fabric at 3.5”
So you are left with two 6.5” x 7” pieces. Iron towards the darker of the two fabrics.
Place the two squares right sides together. Have fabric 1 facing fabric 2 in their respective halves.
Sew along the two opposite edges with a quarter-inch seam.
Cut the fabric again at 3.5” and iron open at the seams. You’re left with two easy-peasy four patches!
If you want to do a four patch in the 12.5” size just cut your initial squares at 13” and follow the same instructions.
