Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Z Cross is the perfect block for a beginner quilter. It is made entirely of the most commonly used patches -- squares and half square triangles.
Although this quilt block is technically a five patch (meaning it is created on a 5 x 5 grid), I found it easier to construct it as an uneven nine patch. However, please do not hesitate to construct it in rows, if that is your preference.
