Squash Blossom

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Squash Blossom quilt block is a representation of the edible flowers of Cucurbita species that produces zucchini and different types of squash. I took a liberty with my colour choices though, as generally the real flower is yellow.

My version of this nine patch block gives the look of a southwestern style of art due to the arrangement of shapes (at least it does to me). The block is simple to sew and features common patches -- the half square triangle and flying geese units. The centre is comprised of s single quarter square triangle patch to emphasize an accent colour for the block.
