|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.
Star and Octagon
Free Quilt Block Pattern
This quilt block called Star and Octagon was designed in the 1930s -- or at least as far as my research would indicate. It is a simple to sew five patch block featuring the two most basic quilt patches -- the square and the half square triangle.
If you are a regular visitor to this website, you will notice that I tend to construct five patch blocks as an uneven nine patch rather than as five rows of five patches. This is simply a personal choice as I find it is easier to sew, but please feel free to use whatever method you prefer.
