Another D4P

Who knew....
Who knew that yesterday when I posted about my
disappearing four patch someone else was getting ready
to post about hers????
Sara took the humble D4P to greater heights!!!
I saw her post this morning and KNEW I had to try it out!

Here's my rendition of a wonky D4patch:


I made two matching 4 patches (using 6" squares again),
laid them on top of each other
making sure opposite squares were on top of each other.

Then I did some cutting.
4 lines going this way and that!!

I laid out two blocks.
This is just like a puzzle!!!!


I did some sewing.

OOPS!!!  :/
I also did some ripping.

Before I knew it I had 16 blocks!!!!

Thank you Sara for your inspiration!
Thank you Blogland for sewing friends!
Thank you stripes for being so energetic today!!!

    Isn't it so true that we are all inspired by one another. Always getting good ideas from other quilters!

  19. You start with 6" squares but after you cut them and sew them and square them up- what size are they? I made one and it's not square but rectangle.

  20. LindieLee: You're comment is set to no-reply, so I will try to respond here. I squared my blocks up to 10" after cutting and sewing the D4patch together. Hope that helps. ;)
