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.

Green Mountain Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Green Mountain Star quilt block is a choice for those quilters who might like a bit more of a challenge. There are no difficult patches to construct, but just lots of pieces. I chose colours that I thought reflected a burning sun over a forest of green, for this design.

This eight patch block is constructed as an uneven nine patch as I find it simpler to work in "chunks" rather than row by row.

Practice up on three specific patches -- the half square triangle and quarter square triangle units, and, my favourite patch -- the flying geese to make this lovely star block.
