|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.
Crossed Roads to Oklahoma
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Crossed Roads to Oklahoma is technically an eight patch block because it is designed on an 8 x 8 grid. However, since I prefer to sew blocks in "chunks" rather than row by row, this pattern instructs you to construct as an uneven nine patch. The end result is identical, but you have an easier time sewing the block.
There are lots of pieces in this block, but none are difficult to make and the end result is a striking design. Half square triangles, squares, rectangles and a few flying geese patches are all that is in this block. Colour placement is key to the final product.
