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.

Campfire Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Campfire Star quilt block is built from the Sawtooth Star block. The centre plain patch in the Sawtooth Star has been replaced with a block made of small flying geese units and squares. This block will allow you to test out your piecing skills by paying close attention to your quarter inch seam allowance.

Since the name of this quilt block is Campfire Star I decided to keep with that theme when choosing the colours for the block.

Both of the sample quilts illustrated have the quilt blocks laid out on point. However, by adding more or less background fabric and sashing, the looks are completely different.
