How to make a disappearing 4-patch block
Four 5 inch squares in contrasting fabrics. You can use either 3 colours or 2 colours depending on the effect you wish to achieve.
Today I’m going to show you another way to make 8 half square triangles (HST) at once and I will show you some of the blocks you can make using this tutorial.
Starting squares size: 7 inch square (2 squares for each block or more if several fabrics are used).
Block size: 10 1/2 inch square.
Block type: 16-patch block.
Trimming half square triangles: Essential. Remember to trim off your HSTs and make sure that they are 3 inch square.
Fabric needs: I will give you the fabric needs for each block. All blocks use four 7 inch squares in different colours and combinations. More details on each tutorial. This quilt is fat quarter friendly.
Colour scheme: For better results, use high contrasting fabrics.
