I was going to tell you how to make this "Disappearing 4 Patch" but it would be better to make one and illustrate each step with a photo. Perhaps tomorrow?
I just had to try it out.
I want "nesting" seams to keep my corners sharp, but this block just defeats me! I've made 9 of the little buggers now, and still don't have a good, consistent way to press them. That will make them hard to sew together.
In S's quilt I am able to nest every seam, and that makes it very easy to sew together with precise points meeting.
So, what shall I do with these? Put them into the "orphan block" bag, which is already overflowing? Or make 33 more and create a scrappy lap quilt? How did I get started on another project?
