I pieced the colors in a general pattern How to Piece Squares

I like to lay my units out, mix and match the color placement.

This is done so that the corner go together perfect and your square is square
Good fabric to good fabric, seam to seam

how to make a table runner
Fold each seam in the opposite direction


Sew these 12 into 6, 4-patch blocks, match the seam lines as shown.


I still pin my work, always have and probably always will.


After units are sewn together, press the seam allowance


Back of the 4-patch square, you will have 6 of these blocks.

Finished these up and we'll start again in a few days.
