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.

Irish Puzzle

Free Quilt Block Pattern

I couldn't resist using the obvious colour in my version of the Irish Puzzle quilt block, but don't let that stop your imagination from creating your own stunning version of this block.

I have chosen to place this four patch block in the intermediate category of difficulty simply due to the large number of patches required to create the block. However, all patches are easy to sew and the only issue is maintaining precision to achieve accurate half square triangles.

The sample quilts illustrated give you ideas of using a straight setting or an on point setting of the quilt blocks. You are only limited by your creativity.
