This week I am presenting a Half Square Triangle Quilt block Another Boston Block Quilt Block and a Combo 4 Patch/Hst quilt block.

I call the 4 patch blocks Combination Blocks because they are combined - 4 patch squares or 4 patch triangles. Here we are using the 4 patch squares this week.

You can find the directions for making the "Blocks" here:

Boston Blocks - http://www.bitsnpiecesworkshop.com/p...stonBlocks.php
Half Square Triangle Blocks-http://www.bitsnpiecesworkshop.com/p...aresBlocks.php
Combo Blocks - http://www.bitsnpiecesworkshop.com/p...tionBlocks.php

For swatch sizes refer to this link:
http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-57276-1.htm

The method of figuring out what size you need for the Boston swatches will work for figuring the 4 patch also only you measure from the center to one edge instead of a corner.

Have fun everyone!! any questions just pm me or email at [email protected]

Rhonda I have a question and I hope maybe you can help me.
I am trying to make the blue extended star but I want my final block to be 12 1/2. What size templet do I need to make the HST's for this to work. Usually I can figure this out but for some reason I am having trouble.
Please help if you can.
Thank you,
Carrie

You need a 2 1/2" template for all the 6 by 6 grid quilt blocks. Have you requested my templates? I was thinking you had. I have most of the templates mailed out for people for this but I do have a few yet to send.
