First Free pattern Friday of the year! In an icy mood, today’s pattern I called “Aster”. It works up to 45″ x 63″ if made as shown. I am always amazed at how the prettiest patterns can pop out of the simplest components. You really don’t need to make things complicated to make a lovely quilt.

In the picture above there are 3.5″ unfinished squares, half square triangle blocks, and hourglass blocks.

There is a half square triangle tutorial here; use method 2 and cut your original squares to 4″. There is an hourglass block tutorial here; start with 4.5″ squares.
