January Block

The basic 4-patch offers so many good designs. Betsy had a book at November Saturday Sewing and a 4-patch quilt caught our eye(s) and several people started cutting fabric strips and squares to make up kits for our next Block of the Month. We skipped December and are offering this block at our January meeting. All blocks will be returned to make a quilt for a veteran. 

TWO SIMPLE BLOCKS go together to make an interesting design. Unfortunately, I do not have a picture of the quilt in Betsy's book.


The finished block is 12"

Each kit contains:
2 6-1/2" squares 
Strips for sewing (2) 4-patch blocks - the 4-patch blocks will measure 6-1/12"

Please return your block at our February Meeting.

Happy sewing!


  1. I just found this. I really like this block !!

  2. When the blocks were returned, it would have been nice to see an amendment to this blog (a photo) how they all look together. Idea for next time (or, it's not too late).
