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.

Coronation

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Coronation quilt block is a good choice if you are interested in making a large block for your quilt. The choice to make a larger block is sometimes due to the number of pieces in the block, so it is easier to be accurate in your sewing. I have created instructions for both a 16" block as well as the more common 12" block.

The patches are simple -- there are just more of them. The block features half square triangles and flying geese units. The final block is really a block within a block as the centre patch is a block all on its own.

The sample quilts illustrated use a straight setting (which produces a secondary pattern in your quilt - look for the additional small stars created when blocks are side by side) as well as an on point setting with sashing and blank blocks.
