disappearing 4 patch block and Tula

I learnt about the disappearing nine patch which I really like and now I have found out about the disappearing 4 patch   form Sarah at Sew Me here is a link to the page "More Like Magnus":   I can not believe I have achieved this,   will just click and see if it has worked  yes it seems to have.  I cut my blocks 3" two of each colour making four and joined them up as in a four patch block.  I then cut them 1" away from the centre on each side of the centre seam both vertically and horizontally

this is the block cut

here I have flipped the pieces to make the correct pattern

the finished block.
I can see me using this again but will try and be more accurate next time.
Two firsts for me on the blog today,   managed to give a link to another blog and have given a mini mini tutorial!

Now for the next 6 tula pink blocks, we are still in the stripes mode with these.

Block 61,    this has been personalised, the 4th row is not correct the two orange strips need to be swapped, I call it personalising it but really it is doing it wrong but I did not notice until I loaded it onto the web page

block 62

block 63

block 64   rather like this one

block 65,   this is my favourite, I had a jelly roll of batiks which I have used up making little bags etc and  have used the rest up on some of my blocks,  must get some more batiks for my stash!

block 66

That is it for today, only 34 more blocks to add,   they have all now got their sashing on and I have ordered a 8.5" square so I can get them cut accurately, will then be back asking what I should do with them!

I love No. 64, yellow and turquoise with dark blue -and the disappearing 4 patch is simply gorgeous and I think you made it very accurately - just a tiny bit personalizing, ha! All other blocks are also very interesting. I loved to see them.

Love the fabric for your D4P. Those Tula blocks are really interesting.

Nothing like a bit of magic created by sleight of hand! I really love 64 and 65.

Nana said...

All are great, but my favourite is the orange one.

Congrats on adding a link; I saw some beautiful things over at Sew Me. I liked your tutorial and think the disappearing 4 patch is a smart idea. Have fun!

Sarah said...

Glad you found my little disappearing four patch block mention useful! Looks like you've been busy with plenty of others too.

Annet said...

Thanks for this little tutorial. It all works so fast with a sewing machine, maybe someday I'll give it a try.

You're doing brilliantly! x

Cutting up your block looked scary but the end result is BOO-tiful. How fun your CQ is in the previous post. Stitching Bliss...

I do like the disappearing 9 and 4 patch blocks. You can get so many varied looks from it, by changing where you cut

All your blocks are turning out so fabulously! #65 is my favourite one too. Such great colours.

Thanks for sharing the disappearing 4 patch, I only had 10 minutes of computer time this morning and I definitely learned something new I am eager to try! I haven't done a Tula block for a while but I have about 30 precut and am taking them to my quilt clubs quilt retreat this weekend :)

Good on you with your blogging skills!! It's good to see your pile of blocks growing - I can see you are lots of fun playing with the diffferent fabrics :-)

Susan Hook said...

Wow, you have been busy sewing all your blocks, I like some of the colours that you have used. I am not sure if I know how to add links like you have done I will have to give it a try, it could be useful!

Claudia said...

Love your blocks and purchased Tula's book! Where can I purchase more time:-)?

The disappearing nine patch is wonderful!

I love the idea of disappearing 4 patch block . It`s really lovely . And the other blocks are beautiful too. I specially like the block 65 as it reminds me of "holi " .....a festival of colors that we celebrate in India . I can just visualize the splash of colors being sprinkled on friends on this day !

Connie Eyberg Originals said...

Margaret, all of your blocks are beautiful but no. 65 has to be my favorite too. I see nothing wrong with any of them. The new techniques/configurations you are learning are very inspiring. I'm not allowing myself to start anything new but you are certainly tempting me!

Dianne said...

My, you have been a busy beaver! I love the disappearing 4 patch. A great way to get another pattern without all the fancy cutting out. Well done, Margaret.
