How to make a Four X star quilt block?
The video demonstrates how to make this very easy Four X star block.
Note: there’s one mistake in the measurements given. The white and red fabric squares are 3 1/2”, the rest are cut at 2 7/8”.
Use strong contrast between fabrics for best results.

- Size: 66″ x 66″
- Quilt technique: traditional piecing or foundation paper piecing
- Skill level: Confident beginner.
- Fabric collection: I made the quilt on the cover from my old stash but I designed with Moda Farm Fresh collection in mind and the main diagrams use that fabric collection. This collection has very suitable black and white fabrics, even acqua that will make a beautiful quilt.
My book Turnabout Patchwork“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
