Rotary trim the edges. Do not trim away too much fabric.
Lay your fat quarters with the bottom edge --- 18" and with the length --- 21".
Rotary cut two strips --- 7" X 21"
and cut the strip on the far left --- 3 3/4" X 21"
Rotary trim the ends.
Cross cut the 7" X 21" strips into six 7" X 7" Squares. This gives you six squares of each color.
Your last strip is 3 3/4" X 21" strip. Cut that strip into five 3 3/4" X 3 3/4" Squares.
You have cut thirty-six 7" X 7" squares and thirty 3 3/4" X 3 3/4" squares from 6 fat quarters.
I took a photo with my new flower appetizer plate. I love all the colorful squares.
Let yourself be inspired by things around you. I may free style quilt flowers on my quilt!
Next, randomly sew the 3 3/4" X 3 3/4" into 4 patches. They should measure 7" X 7" when completed.
You will have two leftover squares after you make seven 4 patch blocks.
I put mine together in my camping sewing room. That is why I say you need to have a little order, to the construction, especially if you have a limited working area. I put one of each color randomly in each row with one 4 patch. There will be six rows of 7 squares. In one of the rows I added another 4 patch (you have 7 four patches) or you could add the leftover solid square instead. Whatever looks "eye pleasing" to you.
It is OK to have the colors close to each other. It is OK to have the 4 patch color with the orange, next to the orange 7 inch square. Same with the blue next to the blue.
One color in every row and forming a pattern at an angle across the quilt.
Either way it looks great!
