The Anvil Quilt Block

Anvil Quilt Block

The Anvil Quilt Block is a very easy block to make.  It is often used in sampler quilts. The most prominent quality of this block is the diagonal movement of the patches.

The Anvil Block is a 4-patch, which is further divided into 16 grids .There is nothing in this block but squares half square triangles.

Using Simple Measurements, if you plan each grid to finish at two inches, the block will finish at 8 inches.

Start with the square in the center.  It takes up 2 grids, so you you cut it 4 1/2 inches raw.

Make your half square triangles to finish at 2 inches. Refer to the link to the instructional page if needed.

Cut the squares for the corners (2 1/2 inches raw)and sew all the pieces together.
