|BLOCKS by SIZE||5" Quilt Blocks|
For those quilters wanting a little more of a challenge, five inch quilt blocks might be the answer -- smaller blocks usually means more blocks to make. Another reason for using five inch blocks is to create a secondary pattern. By using 4 blocks and rotating each of them, you get a different larger quilt block. These larger blocks can then be laid out in variety of ways to make some very interesting original designs.
Dewey Dream - a Variation
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Dewey Dream quilt block dates back to approximately 1899. The block was/is designed as a two colour design, but, I like to see colour, so I have changed it up to include more fabrics -- hence, the word "variation" tagged onto the name of the block.
This five patch design could really not be easier. It contains only squares and half square triangles. Actually, you get two sewing experiences in this one block, as a nine patch makes up the centre of the five patch design.
