This simple variation of a nine patch is incredibly easy to make, but once all of them are stitched together in a quilt, it looks like the most intricate you’ve ever made.

Jenny from Missouri Star Quilt Company makes this quilt from scratch in one of her video tutorials, and once you see how this is made, you’ll realize it really couldn’t be easier.

The block is made up of little strips and some squares. Your background fabric will make up 4 of the 9 blocks, the center block is a solid color, and the remaining 4 are pieced together.

Those pieced together squares are a single strip and two tiny squares that equate to the same size of the strip. Once you’ve sewed together all of those pieces, the block is done!

Stitch all of the blocks together, along with some borders, some batting, and a backing piece of fabric, and your quilt is complete. It’s as simple to make as a regular nine patch quilt.

Watch Jenny make this gorgeous quilt in the video below, then give it a shot yourself!
