Robbing Peter to Pay Paul Quilt Block

You are here:

The Robbing Peter to Pay Paul Quilt Block is comprised of four Drunkard's Path Units. Traditionally, the four units would use only two colors, and the colors are arranged in an alternating fashion, but you can get some interesting effects by adding some more colors into the mix.

If you prefer applique, this block can also be made by applique-ing a four-patch circle to the intersection of a four-patch block.
