BLOCKS by SIZE 16" Quilt Blocks

Larger quilt blocks offer the incentive that there are less to make to produce your quilt. When time is limited, this size of block is your best friend. A second feature is that you can try a more difficult design as the pieces may be many, but the sizes of the patches are easy to work with. A win-win all around.

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.
