|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.

The most common colours of the Scottish thistle are reflected below in my rendition of the Thistle Bloom quilt block.
This version of Scotland's national flower is technically an eight patch block, but I have designed it to be sewn in an easier fashion (at least in my opinion) -- as an uneven nine patch. You will get lots of practice making flying geese as well as half square triangle patches. The only difficulty in the construction of this quilt block is to make sure to always maintain an accurate quarter inch seam allowance due to the number of seams in the block.
