BLOCKS by SIZE 12" Quilt Blocks

A quilter's favourite - the twelve inch quilt block. These are probably the most commonly used. The measurements divide easily and evenly for quick calculations. Whether the goal is a bed-sized quilt or a cuddle quilt in an afghan size, a 12" quilt block is your go-to choice.

Star Twist

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Star Twist quilt block is an eight patch design, but it is broken down into manageable "chunks" for simplification of the sewing process as an uneven nine patch.

The block is comprised of common patches -- half square triangles, and what appear to be half square triangle patches on the end of the rectangular "blades". These patches are actually sewn in the sew and flip method, which uses only squares rather than cut triangles -- easy, peasy.

You will also make a few quarter square triangle patches and some flying geese to complete this stunning, "star in a night sky" block -- (at least with the colours that I used).
