    I made these using 5" squares. First make your 4 patches using 2 lights and 2 darks. Then measure out 1 1/2" from the center seam and cut. Rotate your block and do this until all 4 sides have been cut. Then take the center little block you have just cut from each side and turn them around. Then sew your block back together. I hope everyone can understand this! Its my first tutorial.

    I have a friend that used the five inch blocks and did her cut one inch from the seam. I think I like the one and a half inch better.

    My friend, Roz, made this block following your Tute, and brought it to our summer breakfast show and tell. The block is gorgeous "in person". We're all going to make it now.

    You did a wonderful job on the tutorial.

    the lady who taught me said that you could use different size blocks to make the 4p just adjust your cut to whatever....maybe on a 6" block do a 2" cut? I think its something you could play around with a lot! Oh and thanks ya'll!
