This is Jan's block. It's a disappearing four-patch.Here are the instructions Jan gave us:
Cut two 5 inch squares from a medium pink and a medium dark brown.
Stitch together and make a 4-patch block.
Slice the block from top to bottom and side to side 1 inch away from each center seam. You will make four cuts that will yield 9 units. DO NOT MOVE THE BLOCK WHILE YOU SLICE.
Rotate each of the four rectangle units 180 degrees. Do not rotate the center unit.
Sew the units together to make the completed block. It should measure 8.5, unfinished.
