For this quilt you need 4 fabrics....2
lights and 2 darks.
Sorry I don't have the yardage, I pulled from my stash!
Yellow -- Fabric A
Red -- Fabric B
Print -- Fabric C
Green -- Fabric D
This block in a basic 4 patch surrounded by strips,
built log cabin fashion. The last "log" is strip pieced
from Fabric D and Fabric A before adding to the block.
Each fabric will be cut into 1 1/2" strips EXCEPT Fabric
D. For each 1-1/2" strip of Fabric D ALSO CUT one 3-3/4"
I've found that 1-1/2" by Width of Fabric will give
you approx 25 four patch blocks.
Sew strip of Fabric A to 3-3/4" strip of Fabric D...press
towards D...cut into 1-1/2" pieces and set aside.
Sew strip of Fabric A to 1-1/2" strip of Fabric D, press
Sew strip of Fabric B to strip of Fabric C, press towards
Take these to your cutting board, lay the 2 pieces right
sides together, matching the seams.....cut into 1-1/2"
pieces and sew to create the 4 patch. I stop to press
and square the blocks at this point.
Then take a strip of Fabric A to the sewing machine
and place it face up under the presser foot. Place a 4
patch face down so the seam will be sewed along Fabrics
A and B. Chain sew in this fashion. Cut these apart and
Sew Fabric strips B and C in the same fashion.
The last log will be added using the pieces of Fabric
A and D mentioned earliar....match the seam lines for
a perfect fit.
Press and square the blocks.
That's it in a nutshell.
