The Anvil Quilt block is another easy 4-patch quilt block. Although it is
used a lot, especially in sampler quilts, it isn't listed on the first page
because it isn't at the top of the list of favorite quilt blocks for most
you can see from the picture to the left, this is a 4-patch block, further
divided into 16 patches.
This block has a lot of diagonal movement, which makes it
a nice addition in a sampler quilt.
This block is easy because it is made from squares and
half square triangles. The center square covers 4 of the subdivided
grid. You want to cut that in one large piece.
Determine the sized of your patches, and make your half square triangles, cut
your corner squares, and your larger center square. Sew them together
using good piecing techniques, and you are done.
Here are a couple other design options for this block.
