|I used the first 2 rows of the quilt|
|Place the 1st Row on top of the 2nd Row also the order in which I will sew the squares.|
|Right Sides (The side with the prints) facing each other|
|Where to sew the 1/4 inch seam|
Once you have sewn the rows together you need to press the seam with the iron and press open the seam.
|Top of square is where the seam is sewn|
|Press the seam with the iron|
|Then lift the top fabric up and press open the seam|
You now have your first row squares sewn to the corresponding square in the second row.
Now we will take our first two pieces to make a four patch.
|Close up of the seams nested together|
|I usually place a pin in the middle so I can open it up and make sure that the corner will be perfect|
|Sew a 1/4 inch seam along the edge where my finger is pointing (just be sure to check that you are sewing the fabric in the correct order you laid it out. Check twice sew once!)|
|The edge of my presser foot gives me a quarter inch seam|
|Use iron on cotton setting and press along the seam then as you open it up press the seam open|
|Now you have a Four Patch!|
|Here's an explanation with drawings for those of you that are visual like me!|
Sit back and admire your finished quilt top!
