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.

Blue Ridge Mountain Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

Choose the Blue Ridge Mountain Star quilt block if you would like to make a larger block and therefore you require fewer blocks to make a quilt. A win-win situation!

This is an eight patch block that is actually sewn in "chunks" (as I like to call them) and assembled as an uneven nine patch, just to make the whole sewing process easier.

The block features half square triangles, some square in a square patches and a few quarter square triangles thrown in for good measure.

The two sample quilts illustrated are wonderful examples of how the same quilt block can look so very different, just by altering how you set the blocks into a quilt.
