Depression Block

Sample Quilt Layouts

 

 

The Depression Block quilt block pattern is the perfect choice to use for a "scrappy" quilt. The name of the block suggests the era in time and during the great depression getting anything "new" was not the norm. Clothing and other fabric articles were recycled into quilts so this seemed like the right block to use.

The two sample quilt layouts leave lots of room for your creativity. The quilt on the left uses a standard side by side quilt layout, which makes the central shape in the block take the focal point. The right quilt places the block on point and adds additional colour in the form of blank blocks and setting triangles for a striking effect.
