|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.
This Friendship Star quilt block is for the more experienced quilter. This is not a difficult block, but there are just more pieces to work with.
Having said all of that, this eight patch quilt block makes some lovely designs, as is shown in the two sample quilt layouts shown below. This is just the "tip of the iceberg" where creativity comes into play. Your quilt might be made with one of these layouts or perhaps you will be adventurous and create a design of your own.
