|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.

The Mother's Own quilt block is a perfect choice for a quilt to celebrate Mother's Day. It is an easy five patch block constructed using only squares and rectangles.
"Ah ha!" you say. There are triangles used to make the star in the centre. Well ... yes ... but they are sewn using the "sew and flip" method which is so popular with quilters. No triangles are used. What could be easier?
The block is sewn as an uneven nine patch, rather than in five rows of five -- (just an easier method, in my view).
The two sample quilts illustrated introduce an additional fabric for the sashing between the blocks. This is not necessary, but I thought it added a little extra pizzazz to the sample quilts.
