Free patterns, star blocks

June’s blocks on Meadowside

Over on the Meadowside blog we have reached M in our alphabetical odyssey with Maple Leaf blocks, a Merry Kite and this week we are dipping our toes in the Mississippi.

Superficially the Mississippi block looks a bit like a Friendship Star or the Ribbon Quilt block but look again. The difference becomes very apparent when you put four blocks together

It’s a simple block to make, even at six-inches, and four together will (of course) make a 12 inch block to fit in with the Stellar Sampler we are slowly making this year. You can download the cutting instructions to make a six-inch block over on the Meadowside blog.
