In the previous work we did block-wise bordered and block-wise block-bordered magic squares mutiples of even orders. See the link below:

The even order multiples considered are of orders 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 and 22. In this case, we have blocks or block-wise bordered magic squares of equal sums. There is only two cases where we don’t have equal sums, i.e., of orders 3 and 5.
In case of odd order multiples, still, we don’t have equal sums blocks. In this situation, this work is with unequal sub-block sums of magic squares. For examples, multiple of order 5, lead us to block-wise bordered magic squares of order 15, 20, 25, etc. with unequal sub-block sums. The same is with the multiples of orders 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15. Finally, we wrote block-wise bordered and block-wise block-bordered magic squares of orders 15, 20, 21, 25, 27, 28, 30, 33, 35, 36, 39, 40, 42, 44 and 45.

Below are examples of magic squares studied in this work. In all the cases blocks considered are of unequal sums:
