Texas Puzzle BlockThis version of the Texas Puzzle quilt block finishes at 6" x 6". Each patchwork block is assembled with four half square triangle units (HST units) four narrow bars and a small center square. Instructions explain how to sew one Texas Puzzle quilt block using quick pieced HST units plus individually cut bars and a square.
Texas Puzzle is one of the quilt blocks found in the Backwards Medallion Sampler Quilt, but feel free to use the pattern for a quilt of your own design.
To strip piece 12 blocks, see instructions near the bottom of page 2.
Cutting instructions describe my quilt block, and without a lot of contrast in the HST units -- choose fabrics to suit your quilt.
