Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Rio Grande Crossing quilt block is a nine patch block, which is probably the most commonly used one in quiltmaking. This block contains simple shapes -- only the square and the half square triangle -- once again, favourites of quilters.
This block is by no means difficult, but due to the number of seams, you will need to pay close attention when sewing your quarter inch seam allowance, so that the pieces go together smoothly.
