4-Patch Quilts

4-patch quilts are quick and fun to make. A lot of team effort went into making 4-patch blocks and sewing together on March 10 (meeting) and March 13 & 14, our regular Friday and Saturday sewing days.

Karen got everyone sewing 4-patches and we finished 4 veteran quilt tops (48" x 60"). We probably have enough blocks to make another quilt. If you didn't get a chance to make blocks, it's not too late, just bring them to the next meeting. You can refer back to this post

In no special order, here are our 4-patch quilt tops - notice the various ways you can set these blocks - really so many possibilities when you think about design and fabrics.


  1. These quilts are so much fun! I love that they are bright, scrappy, and represent input from so many in our group.

    I've been continuing to sew my 2 1/2-inch squares into 4-patches - they are perfect for leaders and enders.

    1. Peg, I'm doing the same thing with my leaders and enders, and it doesn't take long to make a stack of 4-patch blocks.
