This pattern is a great stash buster – it’s fat quarter friendly! Each row of Zed blocks uses 2 FQs. My multi-coloured cover version takes 14 rainbow FQs.
If you like you can make each row in one colour only and use up some half yards instead. It’s very versatile, and you can move your blocks around to test layouts before you sew them all together in the final quilt.
This quilt pattern is suitable for a confident beginner. Zed uses Half Square Triangles (HSTs) and Half Rectangle Triangles (HRTs). And yes, if you like Bloc_loc rulers then you will be able to trim the HRTs with the large 2:1 HRT ruler.
The Zed pattern has pressing information to make sure all your seams nest (because I’m really not a fan of pinning).
Have you ever used a directional print and found the pattern facing different directions in the different patchwork components of the block? It’s annoying, isn’t it? (Especially when there are animals involved. We all want our birds to face the same way!) Well, no worries with this pattern as I’ve included a pro-tip to make sure directional prints run the same way across your individual blocks.

The Zed pattern will be emailed automatically to your inbox in the form of a downloadable link. You will be able to access the link three times before it times out – so make sure you save the pattern to your hard drive before then! If you have trouble saving to an iPad (which is common), try saving to a laptop or desk top.
Please note – because this is a digital product it cannot be returned for a refund. Please email me if you have any problems – I’m here to help you.
