|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.
Use It All
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Use It All quilt block is technically a four patch design because it is built on a 4 x 4 grid. However, this block is constructed as an uneven nine patch as the design dictates that is the best way to sew this quilt block.
I had never heard of this quilt block before, but I really liked working with it since it allows for six different fabrics to use in the design. You will use three different patches to construct this block -- a square in a square patch for the centre, as well as using both half square triangle and quarter square triangle cut pieces to form the patch that many quilters call a three quarter square triangle. This is a fun block to create, but care must be taken to observe the colour placement of the fabrics.
