BLOCKS by SIZE 9" Quilt Blocks

Sickle

Sample Quilt Layouts

It's difficult to recognize that this same Sickle quilt block creates these two very different quilt layouts shown below.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left sets the blocks on point which creates a sort of lengthwise "stripe" of the colour used in the large half square triangles. The sashing strips with cornerstones adds an extra design element to this simple quilt design.

The quilt layout featured on the right uses a side by side setting of the blocks in each grouping of four blocks. The 90 degree rotation of some of the blocks in the set of four creates a secondary design of diamonds and squares to give a totally different look.
