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.

The ZigZag quilt block inspired me to choose colours that are often associated with a Santa Fe appeal. So I had great fun playing around with the colours to choose and couldn't seem to quit. As a result, you will see a few different options as suggestions for what you might like to do with this five patch quilt block.

This is a large quilt block, measuring 20" square as its finished size. (I have also included instructions for a 15" block size as well.) So, that makes the final quilt go together faster, but due to the size of the block, there are more patches to create for each individual block. I have added this quilt block to the intermediate category of difficulty simply due to the number of patches.

This quilt block could be considered as a learning tool for new quilters wanting to move on as it contains several different quilt patches -- the half square triangle, the quarter square triangle, some flying geese and square in a square units.
