Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Housewife quilt block is a four patch design featuring half square triangles and quarter square triangles so it is a good choice for practising up those two patches. Together here in this block, these two patches create a unit which quilters often refer to a three quarter square triangle patch. This patch creates the pinwheels as the centre of the design.

The second featured quilt patch is the flying geese unit -- another favourite patch for quilters.

By making the different patches and then constructing them as quadrants, you will then create four individual larger patches -- hence the "four patch" label for this block.
