The Anvil Quilt Block

a grouping of anvil quilt blocks


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 quilters.


the grids of the Anvil quilt blockAs 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.
