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 took advantage of the name of this quilt block -- Sunshine -- to choose my colours. And ... since we all need a little sunshine in our lives, I thought the brighter the better.

This four patch quilt block is made of simple shapes -- only the square and the half square triangle patches. However, due to the number of pieces needed to create this wonderful quilt block, I have designated it as an intermediate level of difficulty. By taking your time and paying careful attention to the precision in making your quarter inch seam allowances, you will construct a perfect block in no time.

The sample quilts illustrated give you ideas on how to lay out your quilt blocks, with or without sashing. Enjoy!
