The Star Puzzle Quilting Block
I like blocks that have half square triangles in the corners, because it gives a curved line appearance to what are usually mostly straight lines in quilts.
This is a 4-patch block, and looks best when placed with other 4-patch blocks. I've put a few together at the bottom of the page.
I've also put an illustration of a quilt make of just this block. I think to make it interesting it would need to be made scrappy.
The patches are obvious with this block. There are 16 and every one of them is a half square triangle. Refer to the instructional pages for half square triangles if necessary. If you are planning on putting this in a sample quilt, be sure and use simple measurements to fit with your other sampler blocks.
This is a pretty block. Have some fun with it.
