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.

Blazed Trail

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Blazed Trail quilt block is a four patch design featuring simple patches, and so, is a quick and easy block to sew.

The only pieced patches are the half square triangles that form the toes on the, sort of, "paws" in those two quadrants. Traditional quilters will see a resemblance to the Bear's Paw quilt block.

This quilt block has one of my favourite characteristics -- that being its directional nature. These types of blocks lend themselves to all sorts of interesting possibilities when designing your quilt.
