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.

Dakota Gold

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Dakota Gold quilt block is a five patch style block, so that makes the math easy. It contains only simple patches -- squares, rectangles and half square triangles -- which as you probably already know -- are the first pieced patches you learn as a beginner quiltmaker.

I generally choose to design the construction of five patch blocks as an uneven nine patch, because I feel that the sewing is easier to work in "chunks" rather than row by row. (This is a personal choice, so please feel free to sew in rows if that is your preference.)
