|Nine Patch||Uneven Nine Patch|
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Butterfly Star quilt block is made of easy patches, but can be a test of the accuracy of your quarter-inch seam allowance because it contains a small block (comprised of small patches) inside a larger block. However, none of the individual units are difficult to construct.
This block is sewn as a four patch to create the centre of the block, and then constructed as a nine patch for the remainder. It contains the commonly used patches flying geese as well as half square triangles.
