|BLOCKS by SIZE||10.5" Quilt Blocks|
A quilt block in a size of 10½ inches is not commonly used, but it is a nice "in-between" size to scale a quilt block when 14" is too big and 7" is too small. As you may have guessed, these quilt blocks fit into the category of seven patch since they are designed on a 7 x 7 grid.
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.
