Crosses and Losses

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Crosses and Losses could be a quilt block that is designed as a "lesson in using half square triangles".

This four patch block utilizes the half square triangle pieces in the usual manner to make a single square patch, but it also uses the individual cut pieces as part of a different, larger unit. All in all, this easy block goes together quickly. I have included the cutting instructions for four different block sizes, so there is no end to the designs you can create using this lovely block.
