In this block Sallieann shows 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 then these get combined into rows. Another great little sewing tip from Sallieann is to chainpiece these together. And she shows 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.
