|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.
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Midnight Pinwheel quilt block is a five patch block (so named because it is designed on a 5 x 5 grid) containing, squares, half square triangles and flying geese patches.
Rather than construct the block as five rows of five patches, I prefer to sew it as an uneven nine patch for the simple reason that I like to work with "chunks" rather than in rows. However, do not let my method sway you. Choose your favourite sewing method.
The sample quilts illustrated are both designed on point but look very different. I also chose to use mitred borders on one quilt just to keep the colour blocking going. I would be very interested in seeing your finished design one day!
