BLOCKS by SIZE 15" Quilt Blocks

Do you have a aversion to math? Well then the 15" inch quilt block is a welcome choice as the patches are designed in divisions and multiples of fives for ease. An added bonus is that by making a larger block, your quilt will go together in no time as there are less blocks to make.

I chose the Cardinal quilt block because it is my favourite bird -- probably because it is in my favourite colour. So pretty and easy to spot on the tree branches.

This five patch block gives you practice in two common pieced patches -- the half square triangle and also the quarter square triangle. The cut pieces of these two patches are used to create what quilters often refer to as a three-quarter square triangle since the patch is constructed using only three pieces rather than four. See if you can easily spot these patches in our lovely bird. The remainder of patches are made of simple squares and rectangles.
