    Help with Disappearing 4 Patch....different size

    If I change the disappearing 4 patch from the 5" charms to a 10" layer cake should I change the size of the 1" cuts or keep as 1" cuts?? I have a larger print/pattern on the fabric so I want to use the entire 10" piece so I don't loose the print.

    I would think you'd need to change it but that is a guess. Maybe to 2" instead of 1". If you have enough maybe do a trail run using a 1" and a 2" and see what you think (or even use some other material to see how it looks).
    Thank you,

      Thanks for your thoughts, I too was wondering about the 2" vs 1". I have to admit, I bought all the solid fabric that was available so I am afraid to cut into it....how silly and rookie but that is exactly what I am.... a rookie but absolutely LOVE this quilting stuff

        I am currently working on one of these for my DD.....in charm pack sizes. I would definitely use a 2" cut or......maybe even 1 1/2". If I were you, I would try some examples in all different sizes in some scraps to see what is pleasing to your eye. The size of the cut won't matter in the long run....you cut, you rearrange, you sew them back together. It matters most to do what you like!

            To keep the design in proportion I would slice 2" all around.

              I made one out of a layer cake and used 2" cuts. Worked out perfect.

                When I used yardage and cut my own 7" charms, I cut at 1.5"
