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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Arkansas Traveller quilt block contains only the easiest of quilt patches -- squares, rectangles and half square triangles. This block is constructed as a four patch with identical patches in each of the four quadrants. Rotations of those components is what adds the interest to the block.

In the two sample quilts illustrated I have used a straight set of the blocks, separated by sashing and also a setting of the blocks on point with additional blank areas to display your quilting skills. All sorts of interesting arrangements can be made using this quilt block, by placement and rotation of the blocks.
