|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.
