BLOCKS by SIZE 12" Quilt Blocks

A quilter's favourite - the twelve inch quilt block. These are probably the most commonly used. The measurements divide easily and evenly for quick calculations. Whether the goal is a bed-sized quilt or a cuddle quilt in an afghan size, a 12" quilt block is your go-to choice.

Christmas Star Anew

Free Quilt Block Pattern

This quilt block is also called simply Christmas Star, but since I already have another block pattern on this website with this name, I decided not to confuse the technology and add my own addendum to the name. Hence, this block is called Christmas Star Anew.

This beautiful eight patch block is designed using several patches -- all familiar ones to you -- but there are just many of them. So, as a result, I have added it to the Intermediate category of difficulty. Having said that, it is not a difficult block -- but simply needs care and precision in your sewing due to the number of pieces. You will be piecing half square triangles and flying geese patches -- both commonly used patches in oodles of blocks. That's it, other than a few squares thrown in for good measure (tee hee -- I couldn't resist that last bit.)
