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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

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.

This four patch quilt block is made of simple shapes -- only the square and the half square triangle patches. However, 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.

The sample quilts illustrated give you ideas on how to lay out your quilt blocks, with or without sashing. Enjoy!
