You’ll find Many Uses for This Oversized Block!
Dig into your stash for a colorful combination of 2 1/2″ and 5″ squares for this wonderful quilt block. Make it as scrappy or as color-themed as you want.
Finish the oversized block into a mini quilt for your wall or table. Or use it as a pillow cover. You can also combine blocks for a larger quilt.
The finished block, designed by Rachel Measham-Pywell for Sew Mama Sew, is 16.5” square. While it looks complex, it’s very simple to make.
Rachel has also created instructions for a quilt made from four of the blocks. It’s a quick and easy project that will be wonderful in your favorite colors.
The finished quilt is 44.5″ square, perfect for a baby quilt or a larger table topper. Add more blocks for a larger quilt.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
