Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Shimmer quilt block is a wonderful choice for a beginner quilter.

This five patch design features flying geese patches, (my favourite patch) as well as creating "blade" points using the sew and flip method for creating the triangle pieces at the tips of the blades. Easy, peasy. Depending on your colour placement you can create several different versions of this block - perhaps featuring the star in the centre rather than the pinwheels. It's all up to your imagination.
