Shoofly Quilt Block

clipart picture of shoofly quilt blocks

The Shoofly is a favorite block for many quilters. I think this is because not only is at a very attractive block,  but it is very easy to make.  You can also use up a lot of fabrics using this block to make a scrappy quilt.  As with many scrappy quilts, the more fabrics you use in the quilt, the more interesting it is to look at.

the grids of the shoofly quilt blockAs you can see from the block to the left, the shoofly is a 9-patch quilt block. There is a square in the center and one on each side of the block.  The corner patches are made from Half Square Triangles

It you want a 6-inch finished block, make your patches 2-inches finished.  If you want a 9-inch finished block, make them 3 inches. You can make them any size, but most people prefer to sew with simple or easy measurements.

Refer to the half square triangle page to make those blocks, and then cut your squares.  Assemble them as shown, sew, press,  as you are done.

Note:  This is the basic version of the shoofly quilt block.  There are many variations that make it larger, and break up the patches.
