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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Pall Mall quilt block is a four patch that is a good choice for the beginner quilter. It contains only simple shapes -- squares and half square triangles. However, don't let the fact that this is a simple block to make, as it can be quite effective when used in your quilt.

The sample quilts illustrated show two different styles of settings -- the side by side layout (with sashing) as well as an on point style. By adding extra blank blocks you can extend the size of your quilt and show off your quilting skills as well.
