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.

The Jersey Basket quilt block is a another easy block because it contains only squares and half square triangles. It is constructed in the method of a four patch, by dividing the sections of the block into quadrants and then sewing those quadrants together. All in all, this is a wonderful block to get you started on your quiltmaking journey.

The two sample quilts illustrated show the quilt blocks rotated here and there to create a secondary pattern, or just to have a flow to the quilts.
