Four Little Baskets Quilt Block

You are here:

This sweet little Basket block goes by two names: One is the Four Little Baskets and the other is Postage Stamp Basket.  That second name seems a bit unusual, but originally the block was made with 1" squares and 1" HST's.  The exploded version below has been simplified to eliminate all those 1" squares, making it a quick and relatively simple block to make.

Skill level: Confident Beginner
