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.

West Virginia

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The West Virginia quilt block is an eight patch, but, as per my usual method, the pattern instructions will have you construct it as an uneven nine patch, which is an easier method (at least in my opinion).

The block has lots of pieces, but none are difficult -- there are just many seam allowances to be sewn. Half square triangles are plentiful and also a few square in a square patches thrown in for good measure.

The two sample quilts illustrated use standard settings of the blocks -- one on point which the other has blocks set side by side.
