The Perfect Project for a Quick Finish in Colors You Love!

The Disappearing Four Patch block is a favorite with today’s quilters. It’s simple to make and adds an interesting complexity to a quilt’s overall design. Plus, it’s beautiful in many color combinations and fabric styles.

Amanda, at Material Girl Quilts, provides a tutorial for this easy block. She used 5″ charm squares for the baby quilt pictured here. To replicate the quilt, simply combine 16 blocks and add a thin border to frame them.

Disappearing Four Patch Tutorial

You can make the block with larger starting squares if you want, especially for a bigger quilt. Choose a beautiful combination of colors against a white background. Or, choose a background color, light or dark, that complements the others in the quilt and allows them to stand out.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
