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.

I always wonder how quilt blocks get their names, and this Quack block is no exception -- its an interesting choice for sure. The good news is that this five patch design is an easy block to construct for a stunning end result.

The half square triangles are the only pieced patches so this sort of star block with a pinwheel central motif makes for a striking addition to your quilt.
