Five Patch quilt blocks are usually used when you are working out the measurements for your quilt in units of fives or tens -- and are a favourite of many. The math is simple and fast. These quilt blocks are designed on a grid of 25 -- 5 patches by 5 patches -- hence the name.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Crazy House quilt block is a five patch block but is actually pieced as an uneven nine patch, just for the ease of construction.

This quilt block contains only squares and half square triangles, making it an easy one to make, as long as care is taken in the precision of your seam allowances.

The two sample quilts illustrated show just how different this quilt can be from another, simply by the different setting used -- whether as a straight set, or on point. It's all in your hands.
