"Leftovers" block pattern

I had quite a few people ask for the pattern on this block so I thought I would post it here.
Several people asked the name of the block and I do not know. I looked in Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia and didn't find one just like it so I'll venture to say something like a Four Patch Variation. Doesn't sound too exciting does it?!
Janet, who left the first comment let me know it is a double four patch. It sounds kind of obvious now!
Enjoy!!

  1. Beautiful quilt--I just finished one of the same pattern and I believe the basic block name is Double Four Patch.

  2. I think it might be Triple Four Patch as there are really three sets of the basic 4 patch. Either way it's such a cool looking block. Reminds me of the one in Trail Mix.

  8. Looks like a quadruple four patch to me. But I can see that the squares have two four patches in each one.

  9. I don't know how many patches it is, but it's pretty! Love the fabrics :)

  10. Karen said it might be a Triple four patch, and that is true, too. I have seen it listed both ways. I was going by the pattern I just used, but I have one my mother made for me that was labeled triple four patch in her pattern.

  13. I used the double four patch block in my bowtie quilt. It is a great "mixer" block as well as a stand alone! Thanks for the directions.

  15. Hi...
    This pattern was featured in 'American Patchwork & Quilting', June 1996.
    Mabeth Oxenreider made the quilt and the pattern was called a 'Triple Fourpatch'. I've made this twice and each time it is a beauty! Great pattern for stashes!

  17. I've been wondering how the pattern went. Guess you've solved it for me now.

    Another quilt on my list ... it never ends does it?

  18. I've been thinking about making a quilt from these blocks--I really should cut the fabrics which I have set aside for it and start making blocks as leader-enders. Great Idea.

    I have been thinking about it as a double-double 4-patch. All the comments here prompted me to go look in Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Blocks ... and I didn't find it there. (The Carrie Nation block is probably the closest).

  19. This is so fun! For years I've been making this block - just one from each quilt I've made's scraps. Someday I'll have a good memory quilt! Maybe when I'm 80. :-)

  21. That is exactly how I imagined the block. I couldn't think of the name either, until I read it and too had the feeling : o yes, of course!
