BLOCKS by SIZE 15" Quilt Blocks

Do you have a aversion to math? Well then the 15" inch quilt block is a welcome choice as the patches are designed in divisions and multiples of fives for ease. An added bonus is that by making a larger block, your quilt will go together in no time as there are less blocks to make.

Square and Half Square

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Square and Half Square quilt block is technically a five patch design -- (as it is created using a 5 x 5 grid), but it will be constructed as an uneven nine patch for ease in the sewing process.

The name of this quilt block is a bit "lacking" I would say, as it alludes to the block being designed using only squares and half square triangles. However, there are a few quarter square triangles as well, and those patches are what forms the star in the centre of the block.

Although this block may look intimidating, it is quite easy to construct, as long as you pay close attention to sewing an accurate quarter inch seam allowance. Enjoy!
