|BLOCKS by SIZE||14" Quilt Blocks|
Do you want to make a large quilt, but don't have a lot of time? The 14" inch quilt block might be your choice. Larger sized blocks equal less blocks to make and the "finish line" is in sight faster. Fourteen inch blocks are typically made as seven patches, as they are designed on a 7 x 7 grid.
The Doves in the Window quilt block is a seven patch using only squares, rectangles and half square triangles. Although there are many pieces in the block, with careful stitching of your quarter inch seam allowance, you can produce this lovely block in no time.
If this quilt block looks familiar, you would be correct as it is similar to several blocks, most notably, the ever popular Bear's Paw.
The two sample quilt layouts shown below use common settings of the blocks -- a side by side layout and an on point layout featuring extra blank blocks for shots of colour and a place to demonstrate your quilting skills.
