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.

Jewel Box

Sample Quilt Layouts

In the sample quilt layouts featured here, I have chosen to make the Jewel Box quilt with a light background fabric in the individual blocks. Dark background fabrics also make for stunning quilts using this quilt block. This is the perfect choice for a scrap quilt, especially if you choose "jewel" toned fabrics -- to further enhance the name of the quilt block. Whatever your choice, this is a simple block and quilt to construct for the ultimate colour sensation. Note that surprise secondary patterns can emerge as you design the layout of your personal quilt.
