Supersize Quilt Block

This is one of those “Why Didn’t I Think of That?” ideas:  Take a quilt block and supersize it to make a full quilt!

April is Quilting Month at Sew Mama Sew and in this particular post, Malka of a stitch in dye shows us how to make this.  In the pic above, those are two completed quilts each done with shoo-fly blocks.  The one on the right is 70″ x 70″!  Each block measures 35″ x35″.  Wow!

This technique would really work for ANY block pattern and it looks so modern!  Great for fabric with large-scale prints, too.  I am definitely keeping this in consideration for my next quilt project :)  Off to look for a fun block that can translate well to HUGE!
