So many quilt blocks, so many versions! As I worked on the traditional Keyhole quilt block, I discovered there is a second quilt block with the same name which I’ll refer to as Keyhole quilt pattern version 2. This is a vertical rectangular block, just like the traditional block and is made with only squares and rectangles. This is a perfect quilt pattern for beginners and for using up those scraps for the center squares.
The pattern uses four (4) fabrics. Three for the center squares that are sewn together to form a rectangle for the keyhole and then four rectangles to border the keyhole. The 6″ x 10″ finished size quilt block is perfect for using a jelly roll for your fabric pieces.
Here is how to cut your fabrics for three sizes of the keyhole quilt block 2:

This is a perfect pattern for using one of those jelly rolls that you just had to buy! Cut sets of four (4) 2-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ from each strip. Then, cut the rest of the strip into 2-1/2″ squares. Have fun combining different center squares into rectangles and then use contrasting or complementary sets to border the center squares.
