    Thanks jclinganrey .... when I re-read the blog, I saw that the cuts were 1" from the middle seam .... makes sense to me now. Duh! light bulb came on! This sounds like a fun swap and I want to play!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Can I make a suggestion.......how about adding the month in the title for which month the swap is for. Since it is middle to middle......could include Dec/Jan.

    Just a suggestion....would make it easier to find the one we are following.

    Brilliant idea and just what I was thinking too. Learning curve here - - -

    Still looking at at the directions and thinking. The tutorial in the instructions shows using only 2 fabrics for the 4-patch but in the sample quilt all four squares for the 4-patch are different fabrics. Will it matter to other swappers which example is used?
    or am I putting too much thought into these blocks?

    MaryMo -

    The link is for instruction purposes only as there may be someone who has never made a D4P. Each month we will have a different theme so while the basic instructions will be the same, the colors, etc. will change.

    For December, there is a lot more room for 'playing'. Please use one black/white square, one white/black square and two different bright colors that 'read' as solid. They can be any combination, by the way.

    So, you are absolutely right. ". . . all four squares for the 4-patch are different fabrics." Very good observation on your part.

    Hope that helps!

    This sounds like a fun activity and will make a beautiful quilt.
    I just realized I didn't answer your question! So sorry. Yes, please make your cuts ONE INCH from each side of the center seam. Turn and repeat as per the instructions in the link.

    In future swaps, I might make some changes for a given month. We'll see. . . I also have some really fun modifications planned for future months. (I have to keep you gals curious, right??) Never a dull moment!

    I forgot to put BRIGHT in the original instruction page for December. Please use any combination of brights in: red/yellow/blue/orange/green/purple. I just don't want there to be any confusion!
