BLOCKS by SIZE 7" Quilt Blocks

If 7 is your lucky number, then the seven inch size of quilt block is for you! It is not all that common in use, but if you are wanting to make smaller blocks, this category of block is a just a scaled down version of any 14" quilt block.

David and Goliath

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The David and Goliath quilt block is an addition to my ever-growing collection of biblical blocks. This is a seven patch (since it is designed on a 7 x 7 grid), but I choose to construct it using my favourite method -- as an uneven nine patch. This method works in what I call "chunks" rather than sewing row-by-row. However, if the latter is your preference, then you choose which method is right for you.

The block features lots of half square triangles and flying geese patches, to keep you in practice.

The two sample quilts illustrated use standard layouts. One has blocks set side by side while the other uses an on point setting with sashing strips separating the blocks and a few blank blocks added in order to feature your quilting.
