Delaware Quilts
        Some quilt shops and catalogs sell blocks of the month to sell fabric and patterns. The purpose of my blocks pages are to help you learn some of the basics of piecing.

        If you know the name of the block you are looking for, use "Ctrl F" (Control F) which will bring up a Find box. Simply type in the name of the block you are looking for.

        Don't know the name, then you will want to look at the different blocks on the Photo Index below. There you will find a mini version of each block, along with its name and the size of the pattern.

HELPFUL HINT
        To make any block go together better, measure each element as you make it. If the directions say it should be 4 1/2 inches measure it and make sure it is. If it's too large, trim it down evenly on all sides. If it's too small... start over again.

        Read ALL of the directions before you do anything else to make sure you understand them. If you are confused, ask questions.

If you find a broken link, please send me an email and let me know. Thanks!

(Triangle squares, diagonal half squares, or half square triangles. They are all the same thing, just different names.)


Photo Index
The sizes listed below are finished.
12 inch finished means when placed in a quilt. Unfinished is when you are done
making it but before it is put in the quilt, so it's unfinished size is 12 1/2 inches.
6 1/2 inches unfinished is 6 inches finished (when placed in a quilt)
