Hens and Chickens Quilt Block

You are here:

Skill level: Intermediate

The Hens and Chickens Quilt Block is a classic 7-patch design. Like many similar 7-patches, it is self-sashing, meaning that the block creates it’s own sashing with multiples of it are grouped together.

This block is easy to confuse with some other 7-patch blocks that are similar in design, including Bear’s Paw, Four Queens, and the Dove in a Window.
