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.

Double Star #2

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Double Star #2 quilt block is, as you might have guessed, based on the Double Star block. The difference is slight, but does add some extra interest -- the centre of the complete quilt block has a square in a square patch, rather than a single square.

This quilt block also features several different common patches, including flying geese units as well as half square triangles and also quarter square triangles, all in two different sizes. So, in fact, you are actually creating a small quilt block inside a larger block. By paying close attention to your quarter inch seam allowance, you will have no difficulty in sewing this block. And, look how different your quilt can look, just by the setting you choose for your quilt blocks.
