Oddfellows Chain Quilt Block

Janet Wickell
Oddfellows Chain is a quilt block with lots of patchwork, and that means its looks can be changed dramatically by altering the placement of color and contrast (see a few more versions of the block on page 4). You might also see this quilt block called Oddfellows Star.

Oddfellows Chain finishes at 16-inches square. Make as many blocks as you need for a wallhanging or bed quilt, or add borders to a single quilt block to create a small quilt.
