Chisholm Trail Quilt Block Pattern

Year's Favorite - 12" Quilt Block Pattern

Fabric Key:

Cutting Instructions:

 

 

Cut six 3-7/8" squares.

 

 

Cut four 3-1/2" squares and six 3-7/8" squares.

If you prefer, you can use my free printable 3" Half-Square Triangle paper to make this block even faster!  If you use this method, skip Step 2 and don't cut out the 3-7/8" squares.  Just follow the directions on the paper.  You'll need to print two sheets to make this block.

Sewing Instructions:

Step 1:  Using a pencil and ruler, draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of all cream 3-7/8" squares.

Step 2:  With right sides together, layer a cream  3-7/8" square on a brown 3-7/8" square.  Stitch a 1/4" seam on each side of the diagonal line that you drew in Step 1.  Cut apart on the drawn line and press seam allowance toward the darker fabric.  Trim points.  Repeat five times more for a total of ten cream/brown half-square triangles.

Step 3:  Arrange cream/brown half-square triangles and the cream 3-1/2" squares as shown in Diagram 1.  With right sides together and using a scant 1/4" seam, sew together to form rows as shown in Diagram 2. Sew rows together as shown in Diagram 3 to finish the block.
