|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.
Sample Quilt Layouts
When using the Red Cross quilt block you will likely consider if or how you would like the crosses to be a focus in the quilt.
The quilt layout shown on the left uses a standard side by side setting with sashing strips separating the blocks. The breaks up the look of so much red in the illustrated quilt (but not by much).
The quilt layout featured on the right sets the blocks on point with large triangles on each corner of a block. This sets up the chance to have a "colour blocking" look to the quilt, as placement and colour choice of those corner triangles allows for this option. The resultant quilt has a very different look from the other design.
