|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.
Show Dad how special he is to you -- using this Father's Choice quilt block. The five patch is quick to construct and the quilt layouts shown below will give you ideas of the perfect quilt to make for your Dad.
Both quilt layouts use an on point setting of the blocks but with very different results. The extra blank blocks allow for that additional colour you might want to include, or perhaps you want to use sashing strips to separate the quilt blocks. The easy to assemble block makes for a quick and easy quilt to create!
(P.S. -- Choose your Dad's favourite colours for your quilt design to make it even more special!)
