BLOCKS by SIZE 12" Quilt Blocks

Ornate Star

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Ornate Star quilt block moves on from the Ohio Star, an old favourite of quilters. By additional patches in the corners, a more "ornate" design is created -- hence the name.

The quilt layout shown below on the left adds some pizzazz to the blocks by adding corner triangles to each block in a variety of fabrics, and then sets the blocks on point. This "colour blocking" makes for a very dazzling quilt.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right also uses an on point setting of the blocks, framing each block with sashing strips for a totally different look.
