Simple blocks – Clay’s Choice

Clay’s Choice is another block with just squares and half-square triangle units. The instructions given are for a 12 inch block as this block is a 4-patch – that is, it has 16 small (4 large) units. Making 4-patch blocks at 12, or 8, inches (or even 16) makes the maths a lot easier.
