As a general rule, an intermediate block is rarely more difficult to make -- it just contains more pieces and therefore more seams. This is the reason that it is important that you can sew an accurate quarter inch seam allowance. Once you have mastered a precise seam allowance, you will have no difficulty in sewing the majority of quilt blocks.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Arizona quilt block is another interesting geometric block comprised of simple shapes. Using just rectangles, half square triangles and flying geese patches, you can create any number of interesting quilt blocks by simply changing up the number of colours and fabrics used.

The sample quilts illustrated show how very different the end result can be by choosing to set the blocks on point or side-by-side with sashing.
