The Green Mountain Star quilt is a lovely large quilt block that makes for a beautiful quilt. Also known as Aunt Mary's Star the block uses snowballed rectangles, Hourglass and Flying Geese patches and goes together quickly! Since the block is large, you don't need to make too many blocks for a quilt top! Plus I'll show you some layout ideas.
The easy Empire Cross quilt block is a wonderful traditional block that creates wonderful secondary designs when made into a quilt. With only half square triangles, snowballed corners, and rectangles, the block goes together quickly. The classic block only has two colors and a background but I had to make it my own with four colors!
Today let's take a look at my variation of the traditional Star Geese quilt block. The original is a nice block (I'll post a picture later in the tutorial) but I really like how this one looks in a quilt. We're going to be doing a bit of paper piecing but it's an easy unit to do.
The Carol's Scrap Time Quilt block is a great way to use up a bunch of scraps and create a beautiful quilt at the same time. It is fairly easy as it uses squares, half square triangles and a modified square in a square block. This is my version of the original quilt block - I'll show what I did different later on in the tutorial.
The Kansas Star (or Crystal Star) quilt block is a classic block that first appeared in print in the Kansas City Star publication. The block is made entirely of square in a square patches so it is easy to sew together. Let's get started!
