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.

Sample Quilt Layouts


I enjoyed designing quilts for this block -- mostly because one often thinks that simple blocks can be boring.

The quilt layout featured below on the left uses an on point setting of the blocks with sashing strips for separation and blank blocks for extra pops of colour.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right also sets the blocks on point. However, if you look closely, you will see a secondary pattern emerging when the blocks touch each other. (Can you see what looks like a dark blue Ohio Star between the "circle" motifs?)
