Split Ohio Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

Just as the names suggests, this Split Ohio Star quilt block is based on the very popular Ohio Star block.

This quilt block is divided diagonally into two halves -- a dark and a light side. This allows for all sorts of interesting design options for your quilt, similar to the technique of choosing a layout for a Log Cabin quilt.

While the Ohio Star block uses only squares and quarter square triangles, this version of the design introduces some half square triangle patches as well. This is what provides to opportunity to divide the block diagonally into halves.
