This makes a 10" block, is partly paper pieced and is from the late 1930's!

The first thing that I would recommend that you do, is go to the Practice Paper Piecing Page.  When you feel comfy with paper piecing, come on back and try The White Square Quilt Block! You will need to print out two copies of the template page per block you want to make on very lightweight paper. In addition to fabrics for paper piecing, you will need four white  2-1/2" x 4-1/2" rectangles, and one striped 2-1/2" square. FQ's should be plenty!

First paper piece all four units, then lay them out with the white rectangles and center square as shown at left. Sew three horizontal rows, pressing top and bottom rows to the outside, and middle row to the center. Join the rows and one block is done!

What an aptly named block pattern! Here is a quilt of four blocks by five (on its side) with double plain borders!

Happy Quilting Folks!
