It’s Great in Many Fabric Styles!
A vintage block is given a fresh new look done up in batiks. Of course, it will be great in other fabric styles, so go ahead and give it any personality you want.
Instructions for two sizes are provided for the block, giving you lots of options. One large block will make a lovely table topper. Just add borders. Or make several of either size for a larger quilt.
Below is a quilt made from the 12″ blocks by the designer, Connie Kresin Campbell. Learn more about it here.
This is a simple block to make from squares, rectangles, and half-square triangles. Larger pieces make it a great block for showcasing special prints. It will also take on different looks depending on value and color placement.
Instructions for both 12″ and 18″ blocks can be found at the link below.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
