BLOCKS by SIZE 6" Quilt Blocks

Dutchman's Puzzle

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Dutchman's Puzzle is a favourite choice for teaching beginner quilters as it introduces you to one of the most commonly used patches -- the flying geese -- (strange that one of these patches is not a "flying goose", but then I didn't name it. LOL).

This four patch quilt block can be made in a variety of sizes and it is a perfect choice when you want to use up all of those scraps from other projects. I guess that the name comes from its appearance of windmill blades turning. All in all, it is a fun block to make.
