|BLOCKS by SIZE||10" Quilt Blocks|
What could be easier, math-wise, than a quilt block in a 10 inch size? Surprisingly, the 10" block is not the most commonly used size, (that would be the 12" block), but there are still many quilt blocks that fit into this category and here is my list of currently available patterns.
Cupid's Arrow Point
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Cupid's Arrow Point quilt block is one to choose for a variety of reasons:
~ You want to make a larger block
~ You want to practice some of the patches you don't use all the time -- like quarter square triangles, flying geese and the square in a square patch.
~ You just want to try something a little different
~ and finally ... you want to make a special block for your Valentine
This quilt block is constructed first as individual patches, then as "chunks" and finally as an uneven nine patch. So all in all it is a great learning tool.
The sample quilts illustrated use the standard side by side setting with sashing and an on point setting, giving similar but still very different results.
