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.

Cross Patch

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Cross Patch quilt block uses only the simplest shapes in quiltmaking -- the square and the rectangle -- and as a result, could not be easier.

This block teaches you first how to construct a basic nine patch which is used in the centre of the block. Following that, you continue to sew the remaining sections as an uneven nine patch -- the process is the same as to construct the centre part, but the sections are uneven, hence the name.

All in all, this is a simple, yet effective quilt block to begin your quiltmaking journey. And -- the resultant quilts will surprise you with their striking designs. (One of the sample quilts I designed looks to me like a "plaid", and if you follow this website at all, you will know I do love a plaid.) Check out the design possibilities on the following page.
