Four patch quilt blocks are constructed of four quadrants. Single patches or several pieced patches can be used in each quadrant of a quilt block. Each quadrant will be one quarter of the quilt block.
Four patch quilt blocks can be in any category of difficulty from easy to intermediate or challenging. The difference in the difficulty is based on the number of pieces that make up each quadrant.

I couldn't resist using the obvious colour in my version of the Irish Puzzle quilt block, but don't let that stop your imagination from creating your own stunning version of this block.
I have chosen to place this four patch block in the intermediate category of difficulty simply due to the large number of patches required to create the block. However, all patches are easy to sew and the only issue is maintaining precision to achieve accurate half square triangles.
The sample quilts illustrated give you ideas of using a straight setting or an on point setting of the quilt blocks. You are only limited by your creativity.
