how to make four patch square simple six inch sampler quilt block tutorial

Our last block for March in the Super Simple Sampler quilt series! This week we have made four quilt blocks with the theme “four-patch” and incorporating that most basic classic quilting patchwork unit.

Here is how to make this 6 1/2″ sampler block.

Cutting

from each of eight fabrics for the four-patches: cut (2) 1 1/2″ squares

from dark yellow print: cut (5) 2 1/2″ squares

Sewing: 1/4″ seam, right sides facing, press after each seam

1. Arrange the 1 1/2″ squares in groups of four, each group consisting of two pairs of matching squares as shown above. Sew the squares together to form the four-patch units.

2. Replace the four-patch units in the block layout, alternating with the yellow 2 1/2″ squares as shown above.

3. Sew one yellow square to both sides of the four-patch in the top row. Press toward the yellow.

4. Sew a four-patch unit to both sides of one yellow square for the middle row. Press toward the yellow.

5. Sew one yellow square to both sides of the four-patch in the bottom row. Press toward the yellow.

6. Sew the three rows together, first sewing the top row to the middle row and press. Then sew the bottom row to the block. Press well.

Your block should measure 6 1/2″ square.

If you are loving that yellow print with the big numbers as much as I am, it is still available in shops. It is from the Figures collection by Zen Chic for Moda (fall 2014). Thanks for following along this month! to see and sew the other Simple Sampler quilt blocks, click Here.
