The skyrocket quilt block is another 12 inch block, particularly adapted for a cushion, using old-fashioned calico prints. These patchwork pillows are just the thing for chair seats in an old-time rocker or more scantily padded to tie on to breakfast room chairs for both looks and comfort.

Used in a quilt this block sets together diagonally with alternate white ones, using half-blocks of the plain to complete. A border of gold and white triangles pieced “zig-zag” makes a fitting finish.

The pattern units above are to be traced on to cardboard, cut carefully and then used to draw around on to cloth. They do not allow for seams, so cut a seam larger and sew back to the pencil line.

In piecing this, the small triangles are first added to the gold blocks to form squares, then the center nine-patch made, and the pieced corners added to complete into a really lovely Skyrocket quilt block design.
