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.

Halley's Comet

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Halley's Comet quilt block could be selected as a "study in half square triangles" -- at least in my mind. I'm always thinking as a teacher of quiltmaking, and so I like to instruct with blocks that are not the most commonly used. This cute pinwheel block is a fun one to make.

This five patch block is easy to construct, once you have sewn your half square triangle patches. I like to stitch blocks like this as an uneven nine patch, rather than sewing in five rows of five. I think it makes it easier to sew in what I call "chunks" instead of row by row -- but that is just me, so please use your preferred method and enjoy this striking quilt block.
