|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.
Five Patch Frame
Sample Quilt Layouts
As its name would suggest, this Five Patch Frame quilt block is designed to surround the centre patch, using the five patches as a frame. In the block image shown here, the same background fabric is used for the block centre. However, this is the perfect spot to use a "fussy cut" square of fabric or perhaps a photo image. This block would be a wonderful choice, using a photo for the centre, for an anniversary quilt or for any family heirloom.
The sample quilt layout shown on the left uses a standard side by side layout, with the same block throughout. But, the quilt layout on the right uses the blocks set on point, but additionally, reverses the fabric placements in each alternate block -- giving a totally different look.
