The Corner 4-Patch block finishes at 8" and is easy and fun to make. There is a 4-patch unit in the corner. The rest of the block consists of a 4″ square and a 4″ x 8″ rectangle. Use scraps, fat quarters, yardage or a combination of all three. Use strip piecing, patchwork piecing or both to construct this unit.
- Assorted fat quarters (FQs). One FQ yields 4 blocks, or
- One 4-1/2” x WOF strip yields 3 blocks.
Binding: Your choice. A good way to frame the completed quilt is to use the dark fabric in the 4-patch units.
