Paper Piecing Patterns for Quilters
Big Sister, Little Sister Paper Piecing Quilt Block

Notice that the block is simply made of two different size “X” (also known as Broken Dishes) blocks, joined by two rectangles to make a square.   For fun, I’ve called these smaller blocks “sisters”, hence the block name: Big Sister, Little Sister.   

 

Pieces A6 and B6 are optional -- if you prefer a simpler block, cover the areas A4 and A6 with a single rectangular piece of fabric; repeat for areas B4 and B6.
