|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.
The two sample quilt layouts shown below are both designed using an on point setting of the blocks, but could not look more different.
The quilt layout featured on the left uses extra blank blocks as a method of introducing more of a colour splash to the design. These blank blocks give the quilter a spot to showcase a beautiful quilting design.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets full and half blocks on the diagonal and separates them with sashing strips. This sashing, with the cornerstones, gives an additional, yet subtle design element to the final quilt.
