Four Patch Flip Quilt

Four-patch flip quilt-. The secret of success is being sufficiently bold with your additional fabric. You need the stars surrounding the dark four patch blocks to stand out.  You need contrast between the dark and light four patch blocks.  Lunch is being provided by your instructor or you may choose to bring a bag lunch.

1 and 1/4 yds accent fabric for snowball corners.  The 1 1/4 yds need to be cut into 2 3/4 in squares.
1 yd border fabric
rotary cutter and mat
sewing machine and basic sewing supplies (pins, scissors, thread)
straight edge for cutting and measuring
