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.

Northumberland Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

Although the Northumberland Star quilt block is technically an eight patch design (since it is created on an 8 x 8 grid), it is more commonly constructed as a four patch, simply for ease in the sewing.

This lovely star quilt block features mainly half square triangles, (in two different sizes) and a few quarter square triangles to finish up this striking design.
