Quarter Square Triangle Quilt Block

The quarter square quilt block is another basic quilt block that is used over and over by every quilter.  Unlike the half square triangle quilt block, the bias edges are the two shorter sides.

This block is also made in pairs, like the half square triangle.  It starts the very same way.  However, it is a two step process, and the squares are cut larger.

Once again you draw your diagonal line, run a 1/4 inch seam down both sides of it, and cut the block on the diagonal line.

 

Now you take your two half square triangles, and place them right sides together, dark against white, and run another diagonal line across the back of one of the blocks.  Run your 1/4 inch seam down both sides of the line, and then cut on the drawn diagonal line.

 

You now have two of the blocks, that look similar to the ones at the top of the page.
