SCRAPTASTIC SCRAP QUILT 2
This is the second part of the Scraptastic Scrap Quilt.
In this video tutorial I teach you how to make a 4 patch out of scraps using 3″ squares and sewing them together. We walk through how to nest the seams together so that everything lines up perfectly in the middle. We then trim (square up) our 4 patch blocks to 5″ X 5″.
You will need to trim each 4 patch block to a 5″ square. You do this by cutting each side 2.5″. You will place your ruler on the fabric and line up with your center seam, from that line you will want to measure 2.5″ and cut the excess off. You will need to do this to all 4 sides. I STRONGLY recommend watching the video below for instruction on how to do this. It will make the process much easier, especially if you have never squared up a quilt block before.
You will need 48 completed and squared up 5″ X 5″ blocks.
