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.

Handy Andy - Variation

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Handy Andy quilt block is a nice introduction to the half square triangle patch, probably the most commonly used patch in quilt blocks (after the square, of course). This block is frequently made as a 10" block because the math works out nicely. However, I have included instructions for several different sized blocks as well.

Though this block is technically a five patch, the units are sewn together in rows of three sections, as an uneven nine patch, so named as the three rows are not all the same measurements. (This is my personal preference as I find it easier to sew blocks together in "chunks" rather than in a row-by-row fashion.)

The sample quilts illustrated on the next page show how you can simply turn this easy quilt block into a really stunning quilt.
