BLOCKS by SIZE 7.5" Quilt Blocks

Z Cross

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Z Cross is the perfect block for a beginner quilter. It is made entirely of the most commonly used patches -- squares and half square triangles.

Although this quilt block is technically a five patch (meaning it is created on a 5 x 5 grid), I found it easier to construct it as an uneven nine patch. However, please do not hesitate to construct it in rows, if that is your preference.
