What advice would you give someone starting this project? The 4 square block is small and somewhat difficult to piece for a beginning quilter. You also need to match points.

could you add a close up of the block? would love to see the part of it where you put the two blocks together somewhere on the quilt. I love this and wanted to make one but wasnt sure how to connect them together, I was thinking sashing, but O how I like your way.

I can. It is a four square block...made to finish at the same size as the other blocks. It is stripped in sets of 3 to create a 9 patch. The four square is 1 1/2" strips of red & white sewn together and then cut into 2 1/2" squares.

You just alternate the 9 patch blocks...I think you will see it in the first row if you look at them as alternating blocks. Hope the pictures help.

there is a trick to matching the seams. it is called locking the seams. youtube it, or just watch some videos on Eleanor Burns, www.quiltinaday.com

9 patch blocks are strip pieced 2 1/2" strips. 4 square (mini) block is strip pieced 1 1/2" of 1 red & 1 white; then sub cut to 1 1/2" using 2 to make a mini block.
