Tipper Canoe and Tyler Too Quilt Block

Often referred to as an "uneven nine-patch" the Tipper Canoe and Tyler too Quilt Block is actually a four patch, built around a square-in-a-square unit. Flying geese units flank the central square on all sides, creating a simple but striking star design.

Shoofly Quilt Block

The Shoofly Quilt Block is a great beginner block, as it easily combines a nine-patch with simple squares and few half-square triangles.

Baseball is right up there with Quilting when it comes to American pasttimes and pursuits. The Johnny Round the Corner Quilt Block was named as a nod to the sport's four bases.

Notice the interesting effect that happens when you swap the coloring on the rectangles.

Battleground Quilt Block

Skill Level: Confident Beginner

The Battleground Quilt Block is basically just the half square triangle on steriods! It's a great way to use up leftover half square triangles that are produced when you use the quick corner method to make flying geese, square in a square units or snowballs.

Obviously, it produces a great looking scrappy quilt.
