This is a project to use up some of those squares you have in your stash but aren't sure what to do with them. You can use 4, 5, or 6 in squares for this project. Just make sure all the squares you use are the same size. I used 4 in squares in this tutorial because that is what I have the most of.
First pick 8 dark squares and 8 light squares. It works best if each square is different but you can use the same darks and the same lights if you have a real problem with scrappy.
Second join your squares in light/ dark 2 square segments.
Now join your 2 square segments together to make a 4 patch block. Again do light/dark matching.
