|BLOCKS by SIZE||16" Quilt Blocks|
Larger quilt blocks offer the incentive that there are less to make to produce your quilt. When time is limited, this size of block is your best friend. A second feature is that you can try a more difficult design as the pieces may be many, but the sizes of the patches are easy to work with. A win-win all around.
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).
