The square shape is based on the historic courthouse steps block. Piecing begins by sewing two short rectangular strips to opposite sides of a center square. Then two long rectangles are sewn to the other sides of the center square. The courthouse steps block stops after just one round of strips in this simplified block. This pattern can make quick gifts or custom home décor. Introduce a friend to quilting and make this quick runner together in an afternoon. This pattern adapts to many styles and fabric choices.
