16 Patch

I’ve had a lot of questions about the size of the blocks in the 16 patch quilt I’m working on. If using squares, they’re cut 4 inches. If using fat quarters, cut your strips 4 x 18 inches.


I found a free pattern online for this quilt several years ago but that blog is no longer active. After a lot of searching, I found an archived link but I have no idea how long it will be active so if you are interested, make sure you save a copy for yourself.

I’m using fat quarters for my quilt so I have a little left over of each one after cutting my 4 strips and since I can’t stand to waste fabric (or the effort it takes to press!) I’m cutting the leftovers into Tumblers for a small doll quilt. No surprise right?

    1. Thanks for the link — it’s not quite the same information she had posted on the original tutorial but I’m sure some people will find it helpful if they are using yardage.



  1. Thanks for the info, Mary! I’m heading to a quilt retreat next week. I like to have a couple easy ones for the evenings when the wine comes out 🙂
