Four Patch Block #3


The last two days I showed you quilt designs based on four patch blocks that I'd designed. I am going to do that again today.

Today's block is called Kimberley.

(By the way I've been naming these four patch blocks after places in British Columbia.)

Four patch blocks are designed on a 4x4 grid.

These four squares are used to create the four patch design.

Both the original Kimberley block and its mirror image are used to make the quilt.

What if the Kimberley block is colored differently?

And what if it is simply repeated?

I am sure that nobody is surprised to find that the resulting quilt looks very different too.


  1. You are amazing. You make my brain hurt with all those possibilities. I want to make them all.

    Sorry about the brain thing. But really, none of this is hard; it's just a whole lot of playing with simple square units and color.
