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.

Ohio Star in Flight

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Ohio Star in Flight quilt block is a choice for those quilters who want to brush up on some of the quilt patches you might not use frequently. These patches are the square in a square and the quarter square triangles. You will also make several flying geese patches, but those make frequent appearances in many quilt blocks.

I chose this title for the nine patch quilt block as it contains the patches that make up an Ohio Star, but the flying geese patches led me to try to be clever with the name of the block. I did not find it in any of my reference books.

The two sample quilts illustrated use standard quilt block settings -- a side by side layout which produces a secondary pattern of pinwheels where the blocks join, and also an on point setting with additional, colourful, blank blocks to showcase some quilting designs.
