Moda/United Notions has printed a new booklet with patterns for big blocks.
Go Big For Your Home
is a Baker's Dozen of 32-inch blocks.
"Big chunky pieces let the fabric do the work for you."
I like that the cover quilt is made from my Union Blues collection
of reproduction fabrics.
You get paterns for 13 large blocks, which would make good crib quilts
or wall hangings as one big block, or full-sized quilts in multiples.
There's a tradition of using large blocks.
Particularly in mid-19th-century applique
And for complicated pieced blocks
Textile Museum of Canada
such as feathered stars.
From Stella Rubin's online store
But sometimes simple blocks show design genius.

If you are thinking big, look for this book.
