The H Block is this month’s entry in our Block of the Month series. The H Block is easy for beginning quilters, but it has the kind of fun movement you find in designs using more advanced techniques.
There’s not much history out there about the H Block, but you can see that it’s based off of patterns like Rail Fence, Basketweave, and Framed Square. This block is, understandably, a real favorite with 4-H quilters and supporters!
This is a quilt block made by Jan Selk Stehlik in 1948.

Here are Marsha’s step-by-step instructions for the H Block.
We happily and heartily recommend a visit to the H Block of Quilt Street. We’re pretty sure that we read somewhere that it’s good for your health!
