The Free Oversized Block Can be a Small Wall or Table Quilt!
One large block makes a striking quilt in whatever colors you choose. It was inspired by a 1930s block and given an updated twist for Fat Quarter Shop’s Classic and Vintage Series.
The 24.5″ x 24.5″ (unfinished) block can be easily turned into a table or wall quilt. Just add borders. Or combine several for a larger quilt.
We love how the gradations in value seem to make the central stars shimmer in the autumn quilt shown above.

Any color theme will be great in the block and the quilt, as well as other value arrangements. Here are a few examples to get you started.

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!
