BLOCKS by SIZE 16" Quilt Blocks

Larger quilt blocks offer the incentive that there are less to make to produce your quilt. When time is limited, this size of block is your best friend. A second feature is that you can try a more difficult design as the pieces may be many, but the sizes of the patches are easy to work with. A win-win all around.

Beacon Lights

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Beacon Lights quilt block is technically a four patch design (because it is designed on a 4 x 4 grid), but it is actually constructed easily as an uneven nine patch, due to the particular patches selected for the design.

This block would be a perfect teaching tool for those instructors leading beginner classes in quiltmaking. The block features several flying geese patches as well as the square in the square unit in two different sizes.

All in all this is a fun quilt block to make. Enjoy!
