Coffin Star Quilt Block PatternI'd really like to rename this quilt block, which is really just a four patch unit (but divided to create sixteen units) placed on point and surrounded with setting triangles. Coffin Star is a lovely quilt block with a not-so-lovely name.
Tailor the Coffin Star block to suit any color scheme, either orderly or scrappy. You can assemble the quilt blocks one piece at a time, or construct strip sets to put them together more quickly.
The block's corner triangles are easy to cut. Oversize triangles are an option, and offer a unique look -- they completely encircle the central design and make it appear to float once all blocks are sewn together.
Finished block size: 12" x 12" as shown
