Martha Washington Star
Free Quilt Block Pattern
I wonder what the first first lady would think to have a quilt block named for her? The Martha Washington Star quilt block is a nine patch that could fit into the easy or the intermediate level of difficulty. However, I decided it would be an intermediate quilt block simply because of the number of pieces required to create the block.
This quilt block is a useful one to use as a teaching tool because it contains half square triangles, quarter square triangles as well as flying geese patches -- all of which are commonly used.
