In this block Sallieann shows us how to create the four-patch unit with the help of strip piecing. She also demonstrates how to subcut this into perfect little 2.5inch units for the four-patch.
The Road to Oklahoma block also needs some half-square triangle units, which you know how to make, and these then get combined into rows. Another great little sewing tip from Sallieann is to chainpiece these together -this again saves time – and how to finger press the seams while you are working.
At the end when the block is made, you could add Best Press to give it a final flourish.
These four patch units get used again in the Jacobs ladder block which is part of your sampler quilt pattern.
