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.

This is a simple four patch block to make, using only squares and half square triangle patches.
The sample quilts illustrated use the block on point (with rotation of some of the blocks in the quilt) and blocks set side-by-side -- again with some of the blocks rotated. As you can see you can do lots of interesting variations with regard to placement of this quilt block to make your own precious heirloom.
