Assemble Four-Patch Units

 1. Sew together a yellow tone-on-tone 2x42" strip and a turquoise print 2x42" strip to make a strip set (Diagram 2). Press seam toward turquoise print. Repeat to make a second strip set. Cut strip sets into 32—2"-wide segments.

2. Join two 2"-wide segments to make a turquoise Four-Patch unit (Diagram 3). To reduce bulk where multiple seams meet, designer Carrie Nelson suggests removing a few stitches at the seam intersection (Pressing Diagram). Fan out seam allowances and press them flat, forming a tiny Four-Patch on the fabric wrong side. The unit should be 3-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 16 turquoise Four-Patch units total.

3. Using brown print 2x42" strips, repeat steps 1 and 2 to make 16 brown Four-Patch units total.
