Choose Interesting Fabrics to Make This Quilt Your Own!

This quilt is a surprising and lovely variation of a standard four patch. Pinwheel blocks add interest and the red boxes carry the eye around the quilt. Soft patriotic colors give it a traditional look, but will be equally charming in your favorite colors.

We can easily imagine this quilt stitched up in modern prints, reproduction fabrics and batiks. Choose subdued colors for a traditional look or select modern brights to give it a whole new look. It’s a versatile pattern that you’ll have fun playing with while selecting fabrics.

Four-Patch Surprise Quilt Pattern

This is a fairly simple quilt to make, but you will need to cut and sew accurately to match the pinwheel points.

The finished quilt, designed by Karen Murphy Gass of Idaho Quilt Company, is about 57 1/2″ x 69″ once completed.

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!
