Entwined Star

Sample Quilt Layouts

You get lots of practice in sewing your pieced patches for this Entwined Star quilt block -- half square triangles, quarter square triangles and square in a square patches.

Both of the quilt layouts shown below use an on point setting of the blocks. The left quilt looks like a meandering chain rather than the star as in the name of the quilt block. The right quilt layout uses lots of blank blocks for extra colour and a spot to show off your quilting designs. There are numerous quilt layouts that can be designed using this easy nine patch quilt block.
