Assemble Four-Patch Blocks

1. Sew together two assorted blue batik and two assorted gray batik 4-1/2" squares in pairs (Diagram 1). Press seams toward blue squares. Join pairs to make a blue-and-gray Four-Patch block (Diagram 2). Press seams in one direction. The Four-Patch block should be 8-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make three blue-and-gray Four-Patch blocks total.

2. Repeat Step 1 using a light blue or lavender 4-1/2" square in place of one of the gray or blue 4-1/2" squares to make five multicolor Four-Patch blocks total.
