The Exploding Block Quilt Is A Great Eye Catcher

 

Start with any size square you would like to have as the center of your exploding block.

Keep in mind each of your quilt blocks should all be the same size.

This helps to line up the blocks into rows and columns when the time comes to sew you blocks together.

You can use one color as kind of a common theme for the quilt or make it completely scrappy.

If you have a mix of fabric precuts or scraps you can mix them up and cut squares from them for a total patchwork quilt.

Make the blocks as large as you want. If you really feel adventurous try using some discarded blocks, square them up and see what happens.
