Eccentric star quilt block tutorial

Eccentric Star

The Eccentric Star quilt block is mainly made using half square triangles and simple squares. A really easy to assemble block, and can have a nice effect on a quilt, especially if you like Star Quilts.

Cutting instructions for the Eccentric Star quilt block

Always be careful of the colors you are choosing. They can easily mess up your block (or quilt) or on the contrary, make it shine! I prefer to make a test block before cutting pieces for the whole quilt. It makes me more confident to continue and make the whole thing.

And always remember FINISHED SIZE means the size it will be in a completed quilt. The measurements given already have the ¼ inch allowance included.

Block variations

Eccentric Star quilt block has some variations that are almost the same block. You can try some of them by using more than two different fabrics and being extra careful with what you cut prior to sewing the block.
