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.

The Homespun quilt block is comprised of three common patches -- the flying geese patch, half square triangles and the square.

You might notice that the Homespun block looks familiar. It has similarities to other blocks -- the Cups and Saucers block and the Hands of Friendship block, but on closer inspection you will see the subtle differences.

Other than the quilt layouts illustrated here, you might also look to the other two patterns mentioned above for inspiration for other setting designs of your quilt.
