BLOCKS by SIZE 12" Quilt Blocks

Four Square Variation

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Four Square Variation quilt block is a simple four patch design featuring half square triangles. This block is an ideal choice for a beginner quilter as you will get lots of practice in sewing those pieced patches in addition to using squares and rectangles.

The added interest in this block is in its directional nature. By rotating some single blocks, or groups of blocks by 90 degrees, surprising new secondary patterns can appear.
