Providence Quilt BlockProvidence is a five-patch quilt block made from a combination of squares, half square triangle units and quarter square triangle units. Both of the triangle unit variations can be assembled using quick piecing methods.
The instructions assume you will use the easy sandwich method to make the triangle units. If you choose another method, cutting will differ. Choose a method that will yield units that finish at 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" -- or are an unfinished 3" x 3" square.
Finished block size: 12-1/2" x 12-1/2"
