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.

Tea Rose

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Tea Rose quilt block looked familiar to me and then I realized it is similar to Bear's Paw block, but it is a little more work. See if you can spot the difference between the two blocks.

This seven patch block is still very easy to construct as it contains only the simplest of patches used in quilt making ... squares, rectangles and half square triangles. With patience and care to sew a precise quarter inch seam allowance, this block will go together in no time.

The two sample quilts illustrated give very different looks, so your quilt design is only limited to your imagination. Enjoy!
