BLOCKS by SIZE 10" Quilt Blocks

What could be easier, math-wise, than a quilt block in a 10 inch size? Surprisingly, the 10" block is not the most commonly used size, (that would be the 12" block), but there are still many quilt blocks that fit into this category and here is my list of currently available patterns.

Alaska Homestead

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Alaska Homestead quilt block is a simple five patch design and could be used as a first block if you are new to quiltmaking. It features only half square triangles and square patches.

I chose to use a colour scheme that represents Alaska -- the navy and yellow from the state flag and the periwinkle colour for the state flower -- the forget-me-not.

For additional ease in the making of this block, I have written the instructions to construct it as an uneven nine patch, as I prefer to work in"chunks" rather than sew row by row, but feel free to sew in your chosen method.
