    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.

    You can also use the same idea for a 9 patch, just sew 3 strips together and change from light, dark, light ..... to
    dark, light, dark.

    If life gives you scraps, make a quilt!

    janeknapp, what program do you use to make the diagrams for the 4 patch? They are so nice and show what you mean so clearly. Just wondering if I have something like that and just don't know it. LOL

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Jelly rolls are one of my favorite precut fabrics selections.

    You might checkyour general settings and see if changing them makes a difference.

    Thank you, Jane. It is much easier to see how it is done, than just to read the directions. I am like NavaSota320. So me, it is easier. JoLe
