BLOCKS by SIZE Larger Quilt Blocks

This page is for quilt blocks that are larger than 16" as a finished product. Some quilt block patterns lend themselves better to be larger -- generally, because they are made with measurements that are not the norm, or they are more complicated and therefore require more pieces. The good news here is that by making a larger quilt block, you need to make fewer for your final project. A win-win situation.

Variable Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Variable Star quilt block has many variations, living up to its name. This particular version struck me as interesting as it has two different things going for it. It uses several quarter square triangle patches and is constructed as an uneven nine patch. The centre strips that make it an uneven nine patch can omit the need for sashing strips and give visual direction while separating the patches.
