Multiple Sizes Provide Many Design Options!

This striking block will be beautiful in a mini quilt, pillow, wall hanging, table runner, full-sized quilt, and more. Six block sizes give you lots of design options.

The bold design can be varied depending on value placements. In the following example, the red and blue are close in value, although the red is a tad lighter.

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!
