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.

Temple Court

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Temple Court quilt block was new to me and I liked it immediately. This block is an ideal choice if you want to make a larger block, although I have included instructions for two smaller sized blocks as well.

If you have had little practice using the square in a square patch, this is your chance -- (look for the red pops of colour in this sample block). You will also sew a few flying geese units, just for good measure. Other than those patches, the rest of the pieces are simply squares and rectangles to make this striking block -- easy, peasy.
