Simple 4 Patch

The great thing about this quilt, is you can use scraps or leftovers from other quilts.

I like to do 8 blocks, but you can do smaller or larger depending on how big your scraps are.

What you will need:

 (60) 4 1/2 blocks to make up your 4 patch blocks.

 (15) 8 1/2 blocks for your solid blocks. I like to pick something neutral.

 Batting. For this size, crib size works well (45 x 60)

 Border, if desired, I do 2 1/2 strips. (2)52 strips, and (2) 40 1/2 strips.

 

Directions:

1. Take your 4 1/2 size blocks and piece them right sides together into any variety you like to create a 4 patch. Use 1/4 seam throughout the quilt.

2. When you have your 4 patches sewn together, start connecting 4 patch to solid block. (1/4 seam again!)

3. Continue to make rows, and then connect the rows to eachother, to create 6 rows with 5 blocks in each row.

4. To add border, sew on the 40 1/2 (horizontal) borders first. Then add the vertical borders.

5. Your top is finished, go ahead and get your backing and batting, and quilt as desired.

Finished Size: 40 x 52
