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.

Grandmother's Choice

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Grandmother's Choice quilt block is a simple five patch block but is constructed as an uneven nine patch for ease in the sewing. The block features half square triangles in two different sizes. Other than that you need only squares and rectangles to make this block. Easy, peasy.

The two sample quilts illustrated are both set with the blocks on point with additional blank blocks to feature your skills at quilting. Enjoy!
