BLOCKS by SIZE 14" Quilt Blocks

Do you want to make a large quilt, but don't have a lot of time? The 14" inch quilt block might be your choice. Larger sized blocks equal less blocks to make and the "finish line" is in sight faster. Fourteen inch blocks are typically made as seven patches, as they are designed on a 7 x 7 grid.

Ribbon Squares

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Ribbon Squares quilt block gives you an "extra bang for your buck", in that it is two blocks in one. The centre of the block is comprised of a Sawtooth Star and that is expanded to include the extras. All in all this makes up this new block called Ribbon Squares.

The resultant quilt block is therefore larger than many blocks, so this is a good choice if you want to create a quilt faster by having to construct fewer blocks. The sewing of this block is simple using only only two pieced patches -- half square triangles for the four corners, and flying geese units as part of the centre of the block.

The two sample quilts illustrated are both designed with the blocks on point but are very different. There is no end to the layouts you can come up with for your own quilt design. Have fun!
