|BLOCKS by SIZE||7" Quilt Blocks|
If 7 is your lucky number, then the seven inch size of quilt block is for you! It is not all that common in use, but if you are wanting to make smaller blocks, this category of block is a just a scaled down version of any 14" quilt block.
The Acanthus quilt block shown below in both of the quilt layouts, uses an on point block setting, with different results.
The quilt layout featured on the left sets each pieced block with a corresponding blank block beside it, to showcase your quilting designs and add a pop of extra colour.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right separates the blocks with sashing strips with "cornerstones" for an added design element. The colour used in the blank blocks and setting triangles gives additional sparks to catch the eye.
