Diagonal Squares

This is another easy block that makes use of leftover scraps of fabric.

This block is just made up of two units - a 4-Patch, and a larger Square.

Again, Value is of more importance than color.  This quilt can be made very scrappy.  None of the prints or colors need to be the same, as long as they are the same value.

What is important in this block is that you place the 4-Patches so that the darker fabrics make a diagonal line.

I wanted to make use of my 3-inch and 6-inch Squares.  I made the 4-Patch from my 3-inch squares.  It finished at 5 1/2 -inches raw.

So I trimmed down my 6-inch squares to 5 1/2 inches so they would join with the 4-patches.

Sew the units  together as in the picture above.

This makes a fast, easy, and frugal quilt.
