The block is drawn with a 10 x 10 grid.
If you have BlockBase, it is number 2870.
Clicking on any of the photos will show a larger view.
Here’s what the Indian Squares quilt block looks like in a basic straight set with borders:
Next, the blocks are defined with some sashing and cornerstones:
I’ve paired the Indian Squares block with a variation block that I drew. It makes the quilt less busy and adds some interest.
In the following design, the Indian Squares block is paired with the Double Nine Patch block.
Now, for comparison to the straight set, let’s see what the Indian Squares quilt block looks like turned on point.
That is one busy looking design!

In this last design, I’ve put in plain blocks and four half square triangle blocks.
Which design do you like?
