Cracker Quilt Block Pattern AssemblyBefore we get started -- wouldn't this make a cute baby quilt or kid's quilt? The Cracker block is a nice size -- not too big and not too small -- and it lets you showcase all sorts of scrappy fabrics. See pages 3 through 6 for a few examples of Cracker quilt blocks and quilts.
- Cut each of the 3-7/8" squares in half once diagonally to produce two triangles.
- Sew the three bars together lengthwise, with the white on white strip in the middle. Press the seam allowances towards the bright bars. The finished unit should measure 4.5 inches square.
- Center and sew a bright triangle to the bar unit, arranging it to flow across the end of a patchwork bar unit as shown. Press the seam allowance towards the triangle. Repeat on the opposite side.
- Center and sew a white triangle to the remaining sides. Press the seam allowances towards the pieced bar unit.
- Your Cracker quilt block should measure 6-1/2" x 6-1/2". If it doesn't, check to make sure your strips were cut to the correct width. If your block is slightly smaller, try sewing the next block with a scant 1/4" seam allowance.
