This month she challenged her readers to make a disappearing 4-patch. I've never tried one before, so started out by hunting through my 4-inch scrap bag and found a couple strips already sewn together to try the technique.
For a 4-patch made of 4-inch blocks I cut 1 inch away from the seam line in each direction. It turned out to be quite easy.

I forget how much I love the crispness of blues and whites, especially in the midst of a cold Minnesota winter!
