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.

Jack's Blocks

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Jack's Blocks quilt block was new to me. I have no idea who "Jack" might be, but this does make an interesting five patch design.

The quilt block is an easy one to construct but you need to take careful note of the symmetry of the block in the placement of the patches. As long as your half square triangles are pointing in the correct direction, this block will go together in no time.
