Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Folded Corners quilt block is sort of an optical illusion, if you stick to colours in the same colour family. By using a slightly lighter shade of the darkest colour in the four corners of the block, it appears that each corner is folded into the centre -- hence the name of the block.
This easy quilt block is a standard nine patch utilizing half square triangles and flying geese patches -- both very commonly used patches in quiltmaking.
