Hi, Iminei! This was the first time I did this, and I found it difficult to figure out, so I may not explain it very well. I wanted the four patch to measure 5 inches from point to point, so I did the math and figured out that my four patches had to measure just a speck over 3 1/2 inches finished, or 4 inches before attaching. That meant that each square in the four patch had to be cut at 2 1/4 inches. For the background setting, I needed squares that measured a speck over 4 inches too. These were cut in half to be added to the upper left side and lower right side of each four-patch. Oy! I was about to explain how to do the end of each border line, but I realized that this is about as clear as mud. I just wish that I could sit down with you, a pencil and paper, and some fabric.
