Double 4-Patch Quilt Block

double 4-patch quilt block

The Double 4-Patch Quilt Block has two 4-patch quilt blocks combined with another two 4-patch blocks that have been further divided into blocks with 16 grids.

It is a good block to use leftover bits of fabric to make the very small squares.  You can strip piece them from lengths of fabric, or even use small, tiny pieces of fabric to make the individual squares.

The 4-patch is one of the first quilt blocks a new quilter learns how to make.  You can see in the pictures on this page how just subdividing the block into smaller squares makes a more dynamic block with lots of possibilities.

Decide on the size of the block with 16 grids first, since you will be cutting up so many strips or squares to make it.  If you use 1 1/2 strips of fabric or 1 1/2 inch squares to make the blocks, the block will finish at 4 inches.

Then you can make the larger 4-patch using 2 1/2 inch strips or squares for each grid to match it.

Remember the importance of value when making this block, and it should be easy for you to do.  There is no need to match colors, like in the picture at the top or bottom of the page.  If you get the value right, it will make a wonderful scrappy quilt.
