Cracker Quilt Block Pattern

Each 6-inch (finished) Cracker quilt block is made with two fabrics. Use our fabric suggestions, or change them entirely to suit your needs.

Choose a bright fabric for the focal area of the quilt block and surround it with a white-on-white or neutral.

Cutting for One Cracker Quilt Block

To make the cracker quilt block, three bars are sewn together to create a square center unit, and then triangles are added to each side of the bar group.

One caution: the bars are cut 1-15/16" wide, halfway between the 1-7/8" and 2" lines on our rotary rulers. Estimating the distance should be fine, but we offer a few alternatives in the Cracker quilt pattern, a 60-block layout.

From bright fabric, cut:

  • One 3-7/8" square
  • Two 1-15/16" x 4-3/4" strips

From the white on white fabric, cut:

  • One 3-7/8" square
  • One 1-15/16" x 4-3/4" strip
