Old Maids Puzzle block

The Old Maid's Puzzle block is a simple nine patch layout block using squares and half square triangles with between 2 and 7 fabrics (picture uses 4). Instructions can be found on the website.

As does often happen in quilting, there are either multiple names for the same block or there are multiple blocks of the same name. I found another variation of the Old Maid's Puzzle block set in four patch layout and a larger variation using essentially 4 blocks in a four patch layout.

Other examples...

Happy Quilting!
