    Four Patch from Jelly Roll

    I'm having a senior moment here. Do I need to cut my Jelly Roll fabrics into 2 1/2 inch squares before I make my 4 patches or is there a quicker way?

    strip piecing. Sew a dark to a light strip press to the dark side, and sub cut them to 2 1/2". I prefer this way to individual squares. Then sew the twosies together for the 4 patch.

    This is how I do it. It goes together really fast.

    Can you show me? I read what you say but, all I can see in my mind is all these strips. I am a little slow and still learning. Visual helps me a great deal.
    Thanks,

    Sew two strips together. Cut into "twos." Sew two of these together into a four patch.
