The other day I found some wonderful charm packs that I could not live without. Moda Lumier de noel and Moda solids in white to tan. I purchased 2 packs each and was going to make the d4p, however I was very tired when I made my first 2 I gave up and tried something else. 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!! 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

Step 1 choose two different 4 patches

Cut in half diagonally both ways on both patches

what you end up with
attachment-102854.jpe

talk half of the 4 patch and alternate them so you have a pinwheel effect.

Sew together each triangle

sew each half together

Cut on all 4 sides 1 1/4"

All sewn together :)

once you have cut all 4 sides 1 1/4" this is where the dp4 comes in. On the first row take the middle block you have created and turn it 180 degrees. On the second row take the first block and the 3rd block turn 180 degrees. Do the same on the 34d row. You will not touch the corner pieces. Then start on the first row and see next photo

yeah it worked!!! Ok this is what you end up with after cutting all around now turn all you have to do is turn the pieces and sew together!

I then sewed each row together in strips and then sewed those strips to finish the block

Thanks for the great tute. I've been looking for a new block to try.
Can you tell me what the blocks measured at the beginning and end?

Thank you, I've been trying and trying to figure out how to do a D4P and now I think I know. It took me quite awhile to figure out that although the corner blocks changed places in the pictures that they didn't really change places on the block.
