    GrammaBabs, if you look at the 1st page, the 2nd avatar posting at 5:07 shows a pic to the right where you can see there is a center seam horizontal and vertical. She cut 1 1/4" to the lft. and rt. of the vertical seam and she cut 1 1/4" above and below the horizontal seam. Be sure not to move the fabric while doing this, just move the mat around to reach if necessary. Hope this helps.

    I recently did the d-4patch for my grandson for Christma, it was fun and turned our well. I didn't bind it but sewed on border, and w/ right sides together,w/ batting on top of wrong side of top, sewed around edges (leaving a space unsewed on bottom of quilt) turned it right side out sewed the opening shut and hand tyed it. I was very happy with the results. But now I want to try this one, thanks for the tutorial!

    2 cuts horizonally
    2 cuts vertically
    equals total 4 cuts.

I'm sorry.. i went thru the 14 pages of posts and didn't see that anyone but me questions this... sorry, i'm so thick!!!! but this intrigues me and i have a lot of charm packs!!!!!!! HELP!!!! B

I took two blocks and decided to cut the 4 patches in half corner to corner then I used half of each block and to make a pinwheel. It looked ok but I wanted more. So I decided to do the dp4 patch method and this is what I ended up with!! I LOVE IT! If you have any questions please PM me and I will answer them on this tutorial. Thank you for watching I have 12 pictures and will try to explain them as best I can!1

    This is great - I have D4P already made but haven't tried it as a pinwheel D4P, it is so beautiful. BTW GrammaBabs it is really important not to move the block on the when you make the two cuts on the horizontal and two cuts on the vertical, that is the only difficulty with D4P. Such a great block - I have a load of beautiful layer cakes in Shades of Blue, I think by Moda, that would be fabulous in this as an all-over block, and a jelly roll in the same fabric that could do as a piano key border. There I am off again, another quilt to make!

    Nadine, charms are 5" squares. So just off top of my head I'm thinking the finished block 'should' be 9-9 1/2"..Anyone else agree?

    I agree with the 9" because once you sew the triangles together, you cut again and you'd have another 1/2" gone.

    Thanks for working out the finished size of block. As a beginner I was struggling to do this for myself. One thing about patchwork is that it is a great way to brush up on basic math. One more question though, what is a piano key border, please?

    A piano key border is simply strips sewn together and then cut into whatever size you want. For example, if you sew 2 strips that are 2.5" wide and the WOF (width of fabric), then sub cut those into 4.5", you can then sew those blocks together and you would have alternating stripes of those two colors, and your finished border would be 4 inches wide. I like to sew a variety of pairs to get in more fabrics. This is also a great way to use up short scraps.

    You could just as easily sub-cut your strips 6", 8 inches, whatever.
