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.

Entwined Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Entwined Star quilt block is a standard nine patch featuring half square triangles and quarter square triangles. The centre patch is made with a square in a square unit. All of these are common patches.

Just to mix it up a little, I have given instructions for the "sew and flip" method of making the small corner triangles in the majority of the patches. These are created with small squares which are sewn down and then flipped back to form the triangle in the corner -- hence the technique name.

As a side note ~ You might also be interested in a similar looking block called Frolic. It is created using only half square triangles. (I also noticed (after the fact), that I used similar fabrics for the Frolic block.)
