This CROSS PATCH block teaches you first how to construct a basic nine patch which is used in the centre of the block. Following that, you continue to sew the remaining sections as an uneven nine patch -- the process is the same as to construct the centre part, but the sections are uneven, hence the name. The added bonus of this block is that it uses only squares and rectangles. Easy, peasy.
The CROSSES AND LOSSES quilt block is a four patch design utilizing the half square triangle pieces in the usual manner to make a single square patch, but it also uses the individual cut pieces as part of a different, larger unit. All in all, this easy block goes together quickly.
This quilt layout of the FOUR PATCH PINWHEE illustrated here sets the blocks side by side and separates them with sashing strips. Some of the blocks have been rotated by 90 degrees to take advantage of the directional nature of the block. This then produces a subtle, secondary design in the quilt.
This quilt layout illustrating the GREEN MOUNTAIN STAR block, uses an "on point" block setting with large corner triangles attached to each block. The careful colour placement of these additional corner triangles offers a variety of different resultant quilt designs.
This quilt design features the CATCH AS YOU CAN block in an "on point" setting. By adding large corner triangles to each block and separating those with sashing strips you increase the resultant quilt size. The careful colour choices for the corner triangles in the larger block is what makes this quilt shine.
This quilt layout of the QUACK block also uses an "on point" setting of the blocks. Note how simply switching up the colour placement of the blank blocks makes a totally different quilt, all the while following similar steps in the design process as the previous quilt design.
