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.

Sunny Day

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Sunny Day quilt block is a four patch (or an eight patch) design , but, in this case, is constructed as an uneven nine patch, simply for ease in the sewing process. There are lots of little four patch units (forming "checkerboards") within the overall design, giving you lots of opportunity to practice up on those patches.

Although there are lots of seams in this block, the patches are limited to squares and half square triangles to form this design. The directional nature of the block leads to all sorts of interesting possibilites for your resultant quilt. Two examples are shown on the following page.
