|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.

I took advantage of the name of this quilt block -- Sunshine -- to choose my colours. And ... since we all need a little sunshine in our lives, I thought the brighter the better.
The quilt block is technically an eight patch since it is designed on an 8 x 8 grid. However, it is sewn in four quadrants, thus making it also a four patch quilt block. It is made of simple shapes -- only the square and the half square triangle patches. But, due to the number of pieces needed to create this wonderful quilt block, I have designated it as an intermediate level of difficulty. By taking your time and paying careful attention to the precision in making your quarter inch seam allowances, you will construct a perfect block in no time.
