BLOCKS by SIZE 16" Quilt Blocks

Larger quilt blocks offer the incentive that there are less to make to produce your quilt. When time is limited, this size of block is your best friend. A second feature is that you can try a more difficult design as the pieces may be many, but the sizes of the patches are easy to work with. A win-win all around.

Fanny's Favorite - A Variation

Sample Quilt Layouts

This Fanny's Favorite Variation quilt block is obviously an adaptation of the Fanny's Favorite block. This new block is a continuation of the skills you have learned, by adding additional pieces and hence, more interest to the block. The newest patch is the flying geese unit, but there are lots of easy pieces in the form of squares and rectangles too.

For these two quilts illustrated below, I chose to use an almost monochromatic colour scheme in the blocks and then in the quilt layouts. By laying out the blocks side by side or on point, you achieve two very different quilts. Which will you choose, or will you design a quilt layout of your own?
