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!
