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 Corn and Beans quilt block has been around for many years. It is a four patch pattern, that is usually made using two opposite colour groupings in the four quadrants of the block.

The quilt block is made entirely of triangles, using different sized half square triangle units. It is an easy block, but care must be taken in order to achieve the desired precision.

The two sample quilt layout show what a varied end result you can achieve by placing the quilt blocks in an entirely different manner. Let the experimentation begin!
