Ok, so I've used the search, read all the posts on the 4 patch topic, even printed the tutorial out. Obviously my brain is nothing more than empty air. I had a lot of 3" strips, so I sewed two strips together. Pressed open and now I have 5.5 inches. Now it is time to make the next cut. I need to cut all these 5.5 strips and join with a another 2 strip 5.5(once it is cut) and sewn onto the first 2 block to get my 4 patch. So, the money question is: do I cut these 2 strip units at 5.5? I should know this and for the life of me can't understand why I can't figure this out!! Thanks, I love this board.
