Scrap Double Four Patch Quilt Block Tutorial
Once I finish a project I like to cut up the scraps into usable sized pieces. I generally cut squares and sometimes strips. I cut whatever sized squares I can get out of the fabric. It’s surprising how these pieces can accumulate just from scraps.
For this block I am using 1 1/2″ squares and 2 1/2″ squares of fabric scraps.
This makes a very cute block which is easy to construct. All seams based on 1/4″
This yields a 4 1/2″ block.
Requirements for the block
2 x 2 1/2″ squares
Construction of the Block
Sew the 1 1/2″ squares together in sets of 2, one of each fabric.
Then sew two sets of two together ensuring that the Center seams are nested. Finger press.
Lay out the block. Make sure the four patches follow a direction. Alternating with the 2 1/2″ squares. Then sew the little four patches to the 2 1/2″ squares.
Press and trim the block if necessary. Make some more!
There are infinite ways these blocks could be used. Down the track I will show you how I’m setting mine….but that’s another story….
Happy scrap sewing!
