As a general rule, an intermediate block is rarely more difficult to make -- it just contains more pieces and therefore more seams. This is the reason that it is important that you can sew an accurate quarter inch seam allowance. Once you have mastered a precise seam allowance, you will have no difficulty in sewing the majority of quilt blocks.

The Swamp Patch quilt block is made with exactly the same patches as the Swamp Angel quilt block. The only difference is that an additional colour has been added to this block. See if you can spot the difference.
Both of the sample quilts shown here have the individual quilt blocks laid out on point, but with very different results. There is no end to the interesting variations you can create in your own quilt, with fabric choices and different ways to set the blocks.
