On Cloud Nine: 4-H Club Quilt Block
4-H Club Quilt Block
Cutting Requirements for 12″ finished block (scant 1/4″ seam allowance):
- Green: Cut FOUR (4) 1 7/8″ squares. (These are paired with the White 2″ squares, which will create the center of the ‘H’, as needed to sew this quilt block together.)
- Green: Cut EIGHT (8) 1 7/8″ x 4 3/4″ rectangles. (These are flanked by the Green 2″ squares & the White 2″ squares. They’re also flanked by the results of the White 3 7/8″ squares as needed sew this quilt block together.)
- White: Cut EIGHT (8) 1 7/8″ squares. (These are paired with the Green 2″ squares, which will create the center of the ‘H’, as needed sew this quilt block together.)
- White: Cut EIGHT (8) 3 7/8″ squares. Then cut the squares diagonally, corner-to-corner, ONE (1) time. You’ll end up with TWO (2) triangles per square. (FOUR (4) of these triangles are the FOUR (4) corners of this quilt block. All of these triangles will flank all of the ‘H’ portion’s of this quilt block as needed to sew this quilt block together.)

Love this one! I’m making a T-shirt quilt now and will include this block in it!
Hi Pam! Glad I could help you out! Would love to see your quilt once it’s finished! Please contact me & I’ll send you my email address so you can send a photo or two to me!
I’m here because Slice of Pie shared a beautiful quilt using this pattern. I would like to use it in a sampler quilt, but I’m a bit confused with some of the math. When I sew the 3 2″ squares (white, green, white)together, it measures 5″. I don’t understand adding a 4 3/4″ piece to that. Is the 5″ strip supposed to be trimmed down to 4 3/4″ or am I supposed to ease it in? Same question for the next step when the “H” is pieced. Trim or ease? Thank you.
Hi Vicky! Slice of Pi’s 4H quilt is beautiful! No wonder you want to make my “4H Quilt Block,” too! I just edited my “4H Quilt Block” pattern. Take a look at it now & see if it sews together any better? If you still have questions, feel free to contact me & I’ll do my best to help you.
