|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 two quilt layout samples shown below both are sewn on the diagonal, but with very different resultant quilts.
The quilt layout illustrated on the left uses many blank blocks in different colours selected from the blocks, to add a bit of pizzazz to the quilt as well as a perfect spot to showcase your quilting designs.
The quilt layout featured on the right fills the quilt with both whole and half blocks and separates them all with sashing strips. The "cornerstones" in the sashing add a tiny spark of additional colour and help to create a subtle secondary pattern where the blocks come together.
