BLOCKS by SIZE 10" Quilt Blocks

What could be easier, math-wise, than a quilt block in a 10 inch size? Surprisingly, the 10" block is not the most commonly used size, (that would be the 12" block), but there are still many quilt blocks that fit into this category and here is my list of currently available patterns.

Square and Half Square

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Square and Half Square quilt block is technically a five patch design -- (as it is created using a 5 x 5 grid), but it will be constructed as an uneven nine patch for ease in the sewing process.

The name of this quilt block is a bit "lacking" I would say, as it alludes to the block being designed using only squares and half square triangles. However, there are a few quarter square triangles as well, and those patches are what forms the star in the centre of the block.

Although this block may look intimidating, it is quite easy to construct, as long as you pay close attention to sewing an accurate quarter inch seam allowance. Enjoy!
