Jazzed Four-Patch: This pattern looks like a lot of work, cutting and sewing tiny pieces. But, here’s the scoop. Start with a normal everyday four patch, cut it up a little and re-assemble it to make a block that looks sooooo complicated. Use a strip cutting ruler, and this will be one of your go-to patterns.
