|BLOCKS by SIZE||15" Quilt Blocks|
Do you have a aversion to math? Well then the 15" inch quilt block is a welcome choice as the patches are designed in divisions and multiples of fives for ease. An added bonus is that by making a larger block, your quilt will go together in no time as there are less blocks to make.
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.
