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.

Thistle Bloom

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Thistle Bloom is a lovely eight patch block showcasing Scotland's national flower.

The quilt layout featured below on the left sets the blocks on point with alternate colourful, blank blocks to showcase your quilting design. The careful block placement generates a central motif in the quilt.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets the blocks side by side and separates them with sashing strips. The colourful "cornerstones" in the sashing add an extra spark to the design. Mitred borders in different colours for the corners offer an additional design element.
