Disappearing 4 Patch

Some of you asked how I made this disappearing 4 patch quilt:

I had thought I would make up a quickie tutorial...and then I saw this posted on Facebook:



So, I figured why reinvent the wheel?  The only difference is I cut my lines 1.25" from the center, but I think I like the skinnier strip better.  You can really use any size square and cut any size strip.  Have fun!

  2. Very fun idea, Michelle! Your quilt turned out beautifully. I can't decide if I like the smaller or larger strip best.
    I had seen disappearing 9-patch, but not this 4-patch method.
