The Four Corners Quilting Block



layout of 4 corners quilt blocks



The Four Corners Quilt Block is a 9-patch quilt block that looks difficult to make, but when you break it into patches it is not hard.

You can easily see the patches on the picture at the left.  Notice the quarter square triangles in 5 of the patches.


The other 4 patches are made from squares and rectangles.

Decide on the size of your grids.  If you want to make a lot of these blocks, strip piece the two small squares together, and then attach them to a long strip of fabric similar to the first round of the log cabin quilt block. 


Value is what makes this block unique.  Be sure that your value is correct, and you won't have any problems with this block.


There are many 9-patch blocks, so you won't have any trouble working this block into a quilt. Below is a visual of this block with a couple other 9-patch blocks.
