    Default Needed: 14" quilt square pattern

    Hello everyone, I'm pretty new to quilting and can only follow patterns. I need to make a 14" quilt square with 3 colors, Red, White & Blue for an event I'm attending with a quilting group...most of the patterns I have found are 8",10" or 12"....can any of you give me an idea of how to make a quilt square with 3 colors and it end up 14"? Thanks for your help.

    If your square is supposed to measure 14" unfinished ( as you measure it not joined to other blocks) then it would measure 13.5 finished (when joined to other blocks)

    The simplest solution would be a nine patch block made from 5" strips if you want to strip piece many blocks or 5" charm squares if you just want to make one block. A nine patch works great with three colors.

    Go check out Pat Sloan's "winter Solstice", it is on her blog. Several of those blocks were pretty big, maybe you can find something there.

    Thanks everyone...the instructions that I was given was to bring a 14" block...but, by my calculations I'm thinking it needs to be a 14 1/2" so that each side, top and bottom would have a 1/4" seam allowance to sew to another block...I've researched and I believe I can use seven (7) 2 1/2" blocks across and this would work. I've made the "Crossing Paths" quilt and I'm thinking this might work. Thanks for all the suggestions, I'm going to go looking at those sites now.

    What about a rail fence block, not complicated, but then it could be trimmed up to the size you need.

    Quilters Cache has quite a few 14" blocks, they'll measure 14 1/2 inches when dome.

    I use this site often.
    If you find a block you like, click on it. There is a button labeled block pattern. You can put what size you need it to be and it gives you a cut list even.

    A Log Cabin block using 2 1/2" strips and a 2 1/2" center square.

    Make the center block red, then use white tone on tone for the light sides and blue prints for the darker side.
