E-zine Free Quilting Pattern Before Anyone Else



“Four Leaf Special 6 Inch”






Curvy piecing is easy with templates.



This usually makes a 6x6 inch block.

Feel free to adjust the size and include this design to your next project.



Here are the steps to complete it:

Save the image and adjust the size if needed. This typically makes a 6x6 inch block when it is put together.

Either you can use the paper as your template, or use template plastic.

To use template plastic, trace the pattern onto the plastic and cut out your traced design. This happens to be our favored method because we tend to make more than one block at a time when making a quilt. Paper also gets destroyed to easily and is so flexible that tracing around it is a pain!

Choose which fabrics will be used with each template. Prepare your fabric as you normally would. Place the template onto the fabric and trace around the edge with a pencil, fabric pencil, fabric pen, etc. Anything can be used as long as it won’t stain your fabric. The design can be traced onto the front of the fabric or the back side. It’s quilter’s choice.

Once all the pieces for your block are transferred to the appropriate fabric it’s time to cut them out.

Decide how you wish to assemble the block. Which pairs are you going to put together and in which order. Every quilter has what works best for them and you will be no different.


Mating two pieces that make straight lines are the easiest and require fewer pins. Curved parts require more pinning.

As you mate and sew your pieces your block will grow.

Before you know it, the block will be complete.

Now your quilting block is complete and it can be used any way you see fit.

Side Note



Get ready for the TMI (Too Much Information).

A lot has been happening behind the scenes here at QuiltingSupport.com.

I, Rebecca, am in second semester of college as a full time student and boy is it buzy!

All of my 4 kids and I have conquered Flu A!

We're ready to get rolling again with more drive and determination than ever!

On top of school work and life getting in the way, I'm also trying to study hard for the cosmetology exam. I need to get my Cosmetology license in the state of Colorado. The goal is to be working outside of the home too. Don't worry! I won't forget about you! I'll still be working on the site and making new patterns!

On another note, yes, I have had some help this morning (furry and human).



Both my daughter and the cuddle bug had to help me with ideas. :)

QuiltingSupport.com has been able to get into a good flow again!

Thank you for all of the support!!!

Be on the look out for new patterns and information! ;)
