Sometimes you will find yourself one or two blocks short for a sampler quilt. Look no further than the Simple Square – it’s quick to make but very versatile.
It is also a very quick 6" block to match with one of the fun sidebars from my One Block pattern book:
|Available for immediate download from Craftsy|
or in paperback format from Amazon
To make a 6” Simple Square block (finished size) you will need:
One 3½” for the center square.
Two 2” x 3½” outer rectangles
Two 6½” x 2” out rectangles.
To make a 12” Simple Square block (finished size) you will need:
One 6½” for the center square.
Two 3½” x 6½” outer rectangles
Two 12½” x 3½” out rectangles.
As I said it is very simple to put together .....
And the clever thing about this block is it can look different every time you make it - perfect as a Sampler Quilt filler.
