The Blazing Star sample quilt layouts use standard settings for the blocks. The quilt on the left features setting triangles for each block, and colour placement is key for the effect shown below. The sashing strips between the blocks give the illusion of looking through a window pane (at least to me). The quilt on the right sets the blocks side by side, and this creates a sort of secondary design between the blocks, due to the colour placement of the outer pieces of the each block.

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.
