|Block 1 - Brick Wall
Welcome to the first block from The Patchsmith's Sampler pattern book and it is a nice easy block to start.
Block 1 ‘Brick Wall’ requires no seam matching and it doesn't even matter which way you press your seams!
Building your Brick Wall is very simple – two different rows combine to make a 6” (finished size) block.
|Block 1 is a great scrap buster block.
Resizing the block is easy too. Just add more rows of bricks, staggering each row.
Tip: To make a 12" Brick Wall block using bigger bricks cut the A rectangles 4½" x 2½" each and the B squares 2½" each.

So there you are – a nice easy Block from The Patchsmith’s Sampler Quilt Blocks pattern book.

I would love to see your blocks over on Instagram (#block1brickwall). I have also set up a Flickr group where you can post your block photos, meet and make friends and just hang out. Feel free to ask a question in the Flickr group or below.
