Star in Square
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Star in Square quilt block is a five patch block featuring lots of half square triangles and also quarter square triangles. There are a few squares thrown in for good measure, but overall this is a star block featuring lots of points. It's a good choice for the learning experience of practicing up on your triangle patches and is a nice change from the usual selections for quilters who are beginning their journey in quiltmaking.
Even though this block is a five patch, I choose to sew it as an uneven nine patch for the simple reason that I like working in "chunks" rather than in rows. You can choose your preferred method and the end result will be the same stunning block.
