The Garden of Eden Quilting Block
The Garden of Eden Quilt Block is another 5-patch quilt block. This can be a very easy block to make by using all squares andhalf square triangles.
Looking at the grid lines, you can see the 5 patches across, and 5 patches down.
When the dark sides of the half square triangles are put together, they form the 4 squares. To easily make this block, you can cut all the squares in the block 3 1/2 inches raw, and make all the half square triangles 3 1/2 inches raw, and then just sew them per the placement above.
If you plan for each grid to finish at 3-inches, the block will finish at 15 inches. If you plan the patches to finish at 2 inches, it will finish at 10 inches.
Here is a visual of some of 5-patch blocks featured on these pages. They are done in a bold, Amish type design, but as with all quilt blocks, you dramatically change the look of the block and quilt with your fabric choice.
