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 are a lot of half square triangles in this block.

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.
