Four patch quilt blocks are constructed of four quadrants. Single patches or several pieced patches can be used in each quadrant of a quilt block. Each quadrant will be one quarter of the quilt block.
Four patch quilt blocks can be in any category of difficulty from easy to intermediate or challenging. The difference in the difficulty is based on the number of pieces that make up each quadrant.
Ann and Andy
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Ann and Andy quilt block belongs to the four patch category. Even though it is constructed using 16 patches, they are sewn together in four quadrants to complete the quilt block.
Squares and half square triangles are the only patches in this block, making it an "easy" block, but it also fits into the "intermediate" category due to the number of pieces used to make the quilt block.
The sample quilts shown illustrate how to make two totally different looks by simply rotating the quilt blocks.
