    Diagonal Disappearing 4 patch tut

    This is how I made the DD 4 patch I posted last week.
    First I used a 4" wide ruler placed it so I would have 2" on each side. Cut corner to corner turn and cut corner to corner the other way. Having a mat you can turn helps immensely.

    attached the middle square to 2 of the outside pieces contrasting colors..

    Sewed the sides with opposite colors together.

    I really like your quilt and hope to make one like it some day. I have a couple of other tutes for similar patterns, but they are a bit more complicated than yours. Like like yours better! Thanks!
