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.

Sample Quilt Layouts


The San Diego quilt block offers lots of options for a striking quilt design.

The quilt layout illustrated below on the left sets the blocks on point with colourful blank blocks, strategically placed to give a "colour blocking" effect.

The quilt layout featured on the right also uses a diagonal setting of full blocks and half blocks, separating them with sashing strips. Blank blocks enlarge the quilt and give the perfect spot to highlight your quilting design.
