Making the Four Patch
You can now cut out your "Blocks"
Make sure the template is on the seams so you have the same measurement on all four sections of the square. Lay the fabric and template on a mini mat and firmly hold the template in place. As you cut each side with the rotary cutter you can turn the mat with your other hand.
Pay attention to the placement of the corners of the template on the seams in this four patch triangles. It is better to cut a square with sharp corners instead of a lopsided corner. If your square is not quite square after you cut you can gently trim the corner even. But be careful because you don't want to end up with a "block" that is too much smaller than the rest of your "blocks"
