Block 4
Block 4 is created by V and Co.

Haha - another block without any Triangles! Remember, this Mystery Shuffle is not only a fun program to see what you eventually will create, but it is also a great way for new quilters to learn how to put a block, then a quilt together.

First, all you will need are just 2 pieces. One should definitely be a light, the 2nd piece could be a medium or a dark. What's fun about any of these blocks is playing around with the different fabric values. Put them one way - you get one look. Put them a different way and look how the block changes. On the pattern instructions, they will show you how the block would look if you use the colors one way or the other. Again, it doesn't matter. Make the block the way you want it to look.

This is yet another great opportunity for you to pay attention to your strip cutting. When you cut, is your fabric edge on the inside or outside, or right on the line on the ruler? It doesn't matter, but the key here is to stay consistent throughout this whole quilt. The other key is to use the same ruler because sadly there can be variations in the markings between different brands.

The same applies when sewing your 1/4" seam - do you consistently place your fabric on the inside, outside or right on the line marking on your machine. Again, it doesn't matter, just be consistent.

Also, pay attention to your pressing. Generally, the standard rule of thumb is to press both seams to the darker fabric. However, if you are going to have many seams eventually come together, you may wish to press your seam open (such as when making a pinwheel block). That helps to reduce the overall bulk.

Here are some suggested tools:

• We're so happy to see this product! It is my favorite tool. It lives on my machine to help me sew a straight line. I truly can't live without it - Sew Straight. And for Block 2 this would be invaluable.

• Or, you might like to use the Qtools Sewing Edge. These are acrylic strips that you can lay right onto your sewing machine. The strip is thick enough so that you can guide your fabric through without it slipping over the edge. This again should help with seam allowance accuracy.
