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.

Six Windows of Sunshine

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Six Windows of Sunshine quilt block was new to me. I liked it for its simple shapes and it made me think of a blazing sun coming through a window pane. For that reason, I chose these colours, which gave me a "southwestern" feel to the block.

Squares, half square triangles and a few flying geese patches are the units used to make this striking four patch quilt block. Oh, and the centre of the block features the square in a square patch. All in all, this block is a great learning tool in your quiltmaking journey.
