Vickie S. held her 4-Patch Strip class today at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I took a picture of one of these fabulous instruction boards that she creates for her classes.
Above, Vickie explains each step in our block-making process.  I couldn't figure out where it got the name four-patch.  I thought it looked like a nine patch to me.  Then Vickie showed me that you sew four patches together and then you slice and insert.  This is a fun block to make.
 Above Rosa shows us her first block.
 Donna shows us her block.
 Diana made a block too.
 Peggy shows us her block.
 We were productive during this all day class.  Above Rosa irons her many blocks.
 And Peggy is busy sewing her blocks.

 Donna had to leave early, but the rest of us stayed way past end of class making more blocks. We were having such a good time we didn’t want to stop. You can tell I’m tired.  I have lots of pictures and not much to say.  I’m just too tired to write a lot about this fun class. 

I just realized I never even took pictures of my blocks and I’m way too tired to go dig them out of the bags in my sewing room. You can see my blocks and more of some of the other student's blocks as we are going to use them to make a bag with Lee Anne during her Bag class on Saturday.

I bought a 4-patch pattern at the AQS quilt show this summer. I probably could have winged it. These are very nice and appear to go together quickly. I like Vickie's instruction board.

I love how fun these blocks look. I simply must have a quilt with those blocks, so my to do list grows! I'm anxious to see how your bags turn out.

Wow! Those blocks all look great! I'm definitely putting this one on my list of things to make.
