Wanna make a Crazy Four Patch Block?
I love this block. I use it over and over again and I don't get tired of it!
Here is how I make it:
Cut your fabric into squares. These are 6.5" squares. Any size will work. This would be an easy block to make using Layer Cakes.
Lay your ruler at an angle through the middle-ish of your blocks and cut.
Now take the top piece of fabric from right side, and "shuffle" it to the back of the pile on the right side.
Take the top fabric from each side and sew them right sides together. Repeat through your whole stack. Press your seams to one side. Keep your stack in the same order.
Now use your ruler to make another angled middle-ish cut in the opposite direction as the last cut.
Then take the top 3 fabric layers on the right side, and move them to the bottom of the pile.
Again take your top two layers and sew them right sides together, lining up your middle seams. Repeat through your stack and press your seams.
Now your blocks should look something like this.
Now use your cutting mat & ruler to square up your stack of blocks.
My blocks ended up at 5.5" after being squared.
You can use coordinating, or not so coordinating fabrics. Or just use up all the bigger scraps you may have laying around.
