|BLOCKS by SIZE||16" Quilt Blocks|
Larger quilt blocks offer the incentive that there are less to make to produce your quilt. When time is limited, this size of block is your best friend. A second feature is that you can try a more difficult design as the pieces may be many, but the sizes of the patches are easy to work with. A win-win all around.
Four Patch Scrap
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The name of this quilt block -- Four Patch Scrap says it all. It is a four patch design and created using lots of scraps -- (my favourite type of block).
This quilt block would be an easy choice for a new quilter, or as a tool for an instructor in the art of quiltmaking. It uses only two different patches -- squares and the (often underused patch) called the square in a square.
Although there are different methods to construct this square in a square patch, I have instructed you on the most commonly used one -- primarily as there is little waste.
Let this quilt block be the one that gets you started on the road to making "scrappy" quilts. Enjoy!
