Corner Squares Quilting Block

 

corner squares quilt block

 

This 4-patch quilting block is a very simple, and easy block to make.  It is often used in samplers, or as a background to show off other more complex blocks.

 

This block is quick to make, hard to mess up, and it works well with other blocks.  It is also frugal in that it only require a couple of fabrics.

 

Using simple measurements, you can cut 2 1/2 inch squares and a 4 1/2 inch square for the center.  The rectangle would then be cut 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches.

 

It is a simple matter to just sew the pieces together.

Here is the grid.  You can see the four sections.

This is a basic building block that can be made more complex by altering the sections of the block.

 

For instance, you can make the corner squares half square triangles. Or you could put a star in the middle, or even a novelty print.

 

Using the simple measurements above, this block has 4 sections at 2 1/2 inches, so the finished measurement of the block would be 8 inches, and the raw measurement is 8 1/2 inches.

 

If you want to subdivide sections, you will want to make your cuts larger.
