Lady of the Lake Quilt Block Pattern

This version of Lady of the Lake is made entirely with half square triangle units. Twenty small units surround a larger half square triangle unit that sits at the block's center. Only two fabrics are required, a dark and a light, and they're reversed from side to side. This example uses two fabrics with the same print, but in different colors.

The pattern instructions result in two Lady of the Lake quilt blocks. Instructions assume you will use the easy sandwich method to make half square triangle units. Cutting will differ if you prefer to sew the units with another method.

Finished quilt block size: 12" x 12"

To make a smaller quilt block, see my 10-inch Lady of the Lake quilt block pattern. a five-patch design. Lady in Red is another variation of the design, with quilt blocks that finish at 9-inches square.

Lady of the Lake Fabrics & Cutting Instructions

Dark doesn't necessarily mean something as deep as black or navy -- the importance is a noticeable contrast between the two fabrics you choose.

Dark fabric:

  • (20) 2-7/8" x 2-7/8" squares
  • (1) 8-7/8" x 8-7/8" square

Light fabric:

  • (20) 2-7/8" x 2-7/8" squares
  • (1) 8-7/8" x 8-7/8" square
