Cute patchwork house blocks make a fun addition to any quilt. This week I share how to make simple four patch house quilt blocks. Combining two basic quilt units, the four patch and a flying geese this block goes together quickly and easily. So you could have a whole village in no time.
You could mix it up and make a bunch of other houses. My It Takes a Village pattern give instructions on various roof tops and houses so you can mix and match to make a variety of houses.
When I created Northwest Plan B I used orphan blocks to create various trees and houses. So in place of a four patch you could use another block as the base of your house. I enjoy seeing sampler quilts that have done this. Having each house have a different block at it’s base. Cory Yoder’s Friendly Neighbor is an example of this.
Enjoy the four patch house quilt block tutorial to get your started.
