Learn a quick way to crank out lots of 4-patches and a different way to make half square triangles. Both very easy and accurate techniques.
Pattern as written uses 2" strips of color and neutral for 4-patches and 3 1/2" strips ( if using a triangle ruler) or 4" squares if using traditional half square triangle method. These sizes yield a 12" block. (Shop model in polka dot used pattern as written,)
****If you prefer to go bigger, use 2 1/2" strips of color and neutral for 4-patches and 5" squares of color and neutral for half square triangles. (If using one of the triangle rulers, you'll need 4 1/2" strips of both color and neutral instead of 5" squares.) These sizes will yield 16" finished block.****You could also bring charm packs to do this size!X!! 5" squares can be used for both the 4-patch and the half square triangles.****Don't forget the neutrals.
Feel free to control your colors if totally scrappy is too wild for you. There's no rule either that eerything has to be scraps. Your fabric can come from your stash and even from a coordinated fabric collection. It's your quilt and you have to like it.
