    visit the ' quilter's cache'
    there are hundreds of free blocks - you can just put in what size block you want then scroll through the ones in your size to choose one.

    I read this as 101 two inch blocks!
    Though I think you are meaning 10-1/2 blocks?

    ITA ... QuiltersCache.com

    If you see one you like in a different size than you want ... remember, most can be easily re-sized!

    Did you see the responses from your previous post? 101/2" Block

    I think you will get more help if you are more specific. Do you want the block to finish at 10.5", or do you want that to be the unfinished size? Many blocks have different names, but is this the one you want (the second on the page)? http://www.quilting-in-america.com/ohio-star.html

    If so, it is based on a 9-patch and is a variant of the Ohio Star. To make a 10.5" finished block, each patch in the 9-patch would finish at 3.5". This means you need to cut the squares at 4". You can follow the instructions here for the QST's - http://www.patchwork-and-quilting.co...triangles.html. I agree with Holice (in your other post) that this block would be a nightmare for a group to work on unless all are accomplished quilters. Good luck!

    Quilts made by groups can be very interesting and enlightening experiences.

    Members can even have a lot of variations in the finished results when making a simple nine-patch block.
