You Can Make

Quarter-Of-Four Block Quilts

Starting With Balkan Puzzle Blocks

Balkan Puzzle is a traditional Four Patch block designed on a 4x4 grid

Its a Four Patch block because it is assembled  from 4 identical units.

What if you ignore the rules and, instead of using the units to make a Balkan Puzzle block, you use them to make something a little different?

There are a lot of interesting new blocks you can make this way. I call them Quarter-of-Four blocks.

I've created a few quilts designs so that you can see the sort of things that are possible using  Balkan Puzzle Quarter-of-Four blocks.

Making Quarter-of-Four blocks is an easy way to play with block design.
