|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.
The English Rose is a five patch quilt block constructed of only the simplest patches in quiltmaking -- squares and half square triangles. As the block is constructed on point, it offers all sorts of interesting quilt layout options due to its directional nature.
The quilt layout shown on the left uses 90 degree rotations of single blocks, set on point, to produce an interesting, geometric design. Extra blank blocks and setting triangles offer additional shots of colour. The quilt layout on the right uses groupings of four blocks, in various 90 degree rotations to produce an entirely different end product. It is difficult to see, at first glance, that each of these quilts uses the identical blocks!
