Patience Corner Variation
Patience Corner

This block struct my fancy when I saw it...I don't know exactly why, but I hope you enjoy it also. You will only need 2 fabrics to complete the block - a dark solid or print, and an off-white print or tone-on-tone. This block is for all of you who don't share my love of doing half-triangle squares. We will be making this one 12" finished.

Sample Quilt Layouts

You need to cut as follows:

  1. Light: cut 4 4-1/2" squares..
  2. Dark: cut 4 4-1/2"x2-1/2"sections; and 4 6-1/2"x2-1/2" sections.

Sewing Instructions:

  1. Stitch a 4-1/2"x 2-1/2" dark section to each light square
  2. Stitch a 6-1/2"x 2-1/2" dark section to each light square unit
  3. Join units together to create the block as shown below.
  4. IMPORTANT: Please square up your finished block to be sure it is 12-1/2". If it is larger or smaller, check your seams and redo if necessary. If you do not check your measurements, your block may not join properly with other blocks easily to create a finished quilt.


This is what your block might look like.
