Oh Susannah Quilt Block

You are here:

The Oh Susannah Quilt Block, designed around a 4x4 grid, can be constructed an either a 4-patch of an unequal 9-patch. (Similar in construction to the Mrs. Taft's Choice Quilt Block.)

When placed in a quilt design using straight sets, diamonds and squares become prominent among "spinning" bars. (See the grouping below for a visual.)
