    Exclamation Diagonal D4P Mini and Mini Tut

    This is a little different twist to the D4P! The slices are made on the diagonal and gives a different look to the block! Yes, some of my hst's are 1/4" wide!

    You lose 2.5" after cutting the blocks down so I worked up a chart for you to know what size squares you need to cut to get a certain size finished block. Here's the chart:

    - Cut (2) 8" squares to get a 13.5" block to finish @ 13"
    - Cut (2) 7" squares to get an 11.5" block to finish @ 11"
    - Cut (2) 6" squares to get a 9.5" block to finish @ 9"
    - Cut (2) 5" squares to get a 7.5" block to finish @ 7"
    - Cut (2) 4" squares to get a 5.5" block to finish @ 5"
    - Cut (2) 3" squares to get a 3.5" block to finish @ 3"
    - Cut (2) 2.5" squares to get a 3" block to finish @ 2.5" (this is the size of my mini)
    - Cut (2) 2" squares to get a 1.5" block to finish @ 1"

    Next you would add 2 coordinating prints and make your 4P.

    Hope you enjoy my mini and give this one a try!

    Since 12" is a favorite size block, you would cut (2) 7.5" squares to get a block @ 12.5" to finish @ 12". n2

    Wow! That required some deep thinking, IMHO. Thanks for figuring it out.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    The D4P and the D9P make such great complicated looking designs that are not so hard to do. Love your version of the D4P and thanks for the tute and the needed measurements.

    Thanks so much!! **I want you to know that your markings of corners will be @ 2" on the larger blocks!** My 1st block I tried 5" squares that finished @ 7.5 with dots placed @ 2" on the fabric. Next I wanted small blocks to finish at 2.5" so I then worked up a chart for your convenience.

    I can't wait for July when I can try this. High color contrast is important to show off those sharp angles. Thanks for the directions and sizes! G
