Disappearing four patch

Yvette and finished quilt.

Yvette had made a disappearing four patch quilt and demonstrated the technique to the retreaters. This is the second one I have seen in as many months and will be very handy for the U3A. Jackie had bought an incompletely finished kit and the technique came at just the right time for her to complete her quilt top. Most of the embroideries had been done and Kathy completed the rest for her - beautifully.
1.Four 5" squares (cut from a layer cake) sewn into a four patch.

Cut 1.25 inches on both sides of the seams, vertical and
Jackie's blocks
Now set together

Reverse the side cut pieces and a new pattern emerges so
now sew them together again.

When I see those lovely arrangements, I almost wish for a machine. No wonder you get so much done, you have an inspiring group of friends.
