 The Georgia Quilt Block

This is one of several quilt blocks associated with the state of Georgia.  The first thing that makes it unique is that it is a 5-patch, as there are less 5-patch blocks than other block grids.

 

This is an easy block to make.  It is just squares and half square triangles

 

The center is prominent with this block, so be sure and watch your value.  You can make this block scrappy, as long as you get the value correct.  See below for the secondary patterns that are formed if this block is used for the whole quilt.

 

Refer to the half square triangle instructional page if necessary to make those block.  Then just fill in the rest of the grids with the squares.

 

Using simple measurements, and making each patch finish at 2 inches, you cut the squares at 2 1/2 inches raw, and the block finishes at 10 inches.

 

This is a great block for beginners and to use up scraps.  If you want to use this block with other blocks, remember to find other 5-patch blocks.
