BLOCKS by SIZE Larger Quilt Blocks

This page is for quilt blocks that are larger than 16" as a finished product. Some quilt block patterns lend themselves better to be larger -- generally, because they are made with measurements that are not the norm, or they are more complicated and therefore require more pieces. The good news here is that by making a larger quilt block, you need to make fewer for your final project. A win-win situation.

Sparkle Star

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Sparkle Star quilt block is not for the faint of heart as it is a challenging block. However, if stars or pinwheels are your passion, this quilt block is for you.

The quilt layout featured below on the left sets the blocks side by side with a blank area in the centre. This allows for an intricate quilt design to be displayed.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets the blocks on point, separated with sashing strips of the same colour as the background. This causes the "cornerstones" in the sashing to add a bit of a "sparkle" (sorry, I couldn't resist due to the block name), as well as the blank blocks for an additional colour pop.
