The Baton Rouge Square Quilt Block

The Baton Rouge Square quilt block is another great easy 5-patch quilt block.  It has a lot of  patches, but they are easy ones.

All you have to do is make the units, using the proper value, and put them together.  There are 8 half square triangles, and 17 squares.


This is a great block to make from scraps.  As long as you get the value correct, the color doesn't matter.


5-Patches make quilts quickly, if you size the patches at least 3 inches.  If you make the patches finish at 3 inches, your blocks will finish at 15 inches. That makes for a quick quilt.


Here is a visual of the Baton Rouge quilt block with a few other 5-patch quilt blocks.
