Blocks

Sawtooth Star
blue star sampler
This sampler quilt contains many blocks of different sizes and/or patterns.

 

“Blocks” refer to the squares (or other shapes) in a quilt that make up the overall pattern. There are thousands of blocks that quilters can use in their quilts.  

Many quilts are made by repeating one block pattern.  Other quilts contain two or more blocks that form designs that repeat.  In the sampler quilt above, most of the blocks are different in design and size.
