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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

There are many variations of the Monkey Wrench quilt block but all in all, it is a very easy block to create. Squares and half square triangles are all the units involved in the making of this block. The interest will lie in your colour choices, so don't be shy about experimenting.

Both of the sample quilts illustrated show the quilt blocks laid out on point. However, note the very different end results by simply changing up the additional elements for the final quilt.
