BOW #12 Anvil
For a 12" block you will need:
(1) 6-1/2" square dark
(8) HSTs, dark and light, 3-1/2" (See BOW#1 for instructions for making Half Square Triangle Units; you will start with 3-7/8" squares, 4 dark and 4 light)
(2) 3-1/2" light squares
Arrange the pieces as shown:
When you arrange multiple blocks for a quilt, try rotating the blocks to create different patterns--diagonal stripes, or a concentric square/rectangle pattern.
MK says: Ooops! Sorry, Karen, I was wrong: that wasn't an Anvil quilt but one of those blocks that goes by various names. The article I referenced to make the quilt called it Anvil, but it's not this block. So instead, I'll post this snapshot from BlockFab, showing the Anvil pattern with blocks rotated using Sunshine and Shadow symmetry.
