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.

Inverted Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Inverted Star quilt block uses the "negative" space in the centre of the block to form the star -- thus the word "inverted" in the block name.

This nine patch quilt block is the ideal choice to sew to use up all of those scraps of fabric left over from other projects. However, you could easily decide to use a single contrasting fabric in place of the scraps used for this block. This would give a controlled look to your quilt block.

The design is made up using lots of half square triangle patches, and a few squares thrown in. I purposely chose a dark blue fabric for the background to simulate a night sky where these stars will sparkle.
