BLOCKS by SIZE 8" Quilt Blocks

Chinese Puzzle

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Chinese Puzzle quilt block is comprised of half square triangles and a few quarter square triangles.

The interest in the block is how the pieces go together to make up the design. I have chosen only three fabrics to use in this block -- a dark, a light and a medium value fabric. However, you could also choose to use a variety of darks, lights and medium value fabrics to make a scrappy version of this block. (Regular followers of this website will know that scrappy quilts are my favourites.)
