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.

Morning Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Morning Star quilt block is made entirely of squares and triangles. It is a another block that is built on the Ohio Star pattern.

There is nothing particularly difficult in the construction of this block except to be very conscious of keeping your seam allowance precise. This block allows you to be very creative with your colour choices and you can certainly branch out to use more selections than I have chosen to use in this sample.

The sample quilts shown illustrate two very different end results, simply by changing the layout of the quilt block and choosing different colour values for the borders and/or background fabrics.
