Another four patch

I found an interesting four patch here: http://round22.blogspot.com/2012/07/disappearing-4-patch-with-twist.html .

There are complete instructions on how to make it on the link, but here’s my quick version.

Here is my four patch with 2″ from the corner marked on all sides.

Here it is again with four cuts, cutting from one mark to the next. You have to be careful, handling and sewing these pieces, since each cut has a bias edge.

I’ve rearranged the pieces and sewn them back together. I think this one is really interesting. It looks way more complicated to make than it really is.

    Hi, Claire — hope this comment is clearer than gibberish. Thanks for sharing your disappearing blocks. I’ve tried D9P with 3.5 9-patches — fiddly but fun. (And, a couple of posts earlier: I like the selvedge postcards.)

      Thanks for commenting, Nann. I’ve visited your blog numerous times, but oops, I’ve never left a comment. Since my mom was a librarian, I feel a connection with you besides the quilting one. I liked reading your story about the Mexican vanilla.
