How to do very simple machine patchwork

Here is how to do very simple machine patchwork. I took these photos to show my year nines on Thursday. 

First cut four squares of fabric equal sized. Use a variety of patterns or colours for interest. 

Then putting the right sides together of two squares pin along the edge with the pins facing towards the edge of the fabric. (so you can sew straight over them)

This will give you a seam like this. Then sew the other pair of squares in exactly the same method.

Then put the pairs rights sides together and pin. Sew a seam along the edge. Continue to do this adding rows of squares until the patchwork is the size you require.
