|5" Quilt Blocks
For those quilters wanting a little more of a challenge, five inch quilt blocks might be the answer -- smaller blocks usually means more blocks to make. Another reason for using five inch blocks is to create a secondary pattern. By using 4 blocks and rotating each of them, you get a different larger quilt block. These larger blocks can then be laid out in variety of ways to make some very interesting original designs.
Cross - Variation
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Cross - Variation quilt block is an easy design constructed as an uneven nine patch.
This cross is comprised of only simple patches -- squares, rectangles and half square triangles - (the first pieced patch you will learn as a new quilter). The directional nature of the block allows for all sorts of interesting possibilities when designing your final quilt.
You might want to use this block for special reasons or as part of a quilt designed using other biblical quilt blocks.
