BLOCKS by SIZE 10" Quilt Blocks

What could be easier, math-wise, than a quilt block in a 10 inch size? Surprisingly, the 10" block is not the most commonly used size, (that would be the 12" block), but there are still many quilt blocks that fit into this category and here is my list of currently available patterns.

Mexican Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

Mexican Star is one of the many favourite 10" quilt block patterns that can be constructed in a couple of ways. I have chosen to use half square triangles and quarter square triangles to use familiar quilt patches and also as a teaching experience. I have also included instructions for a larger block as well.

You can make many variations in your personal quilt by adding sashing, as shown in the illustrations, or perhaps see what secondary patterns you can create by placing blocks side by side. Imagination is the only requirement.
