The half square triangle unit is probably the most commonly used patch in a quilt block -- well it is second only to the square. It is made simply with two triangles, filling up half the square each -- hence the name. Take a quick look through this website, or in any quilting magazine, and you will start to notice that this half square triangle, regardless of its size, is present in more quilts than not.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Arrow Crown quilt block has no difficult patches in the block. However, do to the large number of patches required to make the block, I have assigned this quilt block to an intermediate level of difficulty.

For this sample, I decided to use a gradated range of colours, so you will see a selection from a pale yellow to a deep burgundy in these fabrics.

The sample quilts illustrated show the quilt blocks on point and also side-by-side with sashing. This can give you an idea of how many different looks you can achieve by simply using your imagination with how to set the blocks in your own quilt.
