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.

Clay's Choice II

Free Quilt Block Pattern

This quilt block is named Clay's Choice but there is at least one other block with that same name, so I this named this version as Clay's Choice II just to avoid confusion.

I took some liberties with the construction, as I saw no need for extra seams here and there. Each rectangle was originally two squares and all of the flying geese units were half square triangle patches. Why make it more difficult?

You can make your quilt go together more quickly, as this block works well as a 16" block, but I have also included instructions for smaller blocks as well.

The two sample quilts illustrated give you basic ideas of how to lay out your blocks to make your special quilt.
