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.

Crow's Feet

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Crow's Feet quilt block is technically an eight patch block, but rarely is sewn together row by row as that just gets cumbersome. Instead it is constructed as an uneven nine patch since that just makes the sewing easier. I have assigned this quilt block to an intermediate level of difficulty, simply due to the number of pieces in the block. None of the patches are difficult to construct. You will be making half square triangles and flying geese units.

The two sample quilts illustrated look very different and that is simply because of the choice of layout of the blocks.
