|BLOCKS by SIZE||8" Quilt Blocks|
Eight inch quilt blocks are commonly used in quilts that are made up of one block only and the parts are easily divisible by four. Also, by setting the blocks in different layouts, you can create many different new designs -- sometimes with just a simple rotation of the block. This is not to say that larger or smaller versions of the same quilt block cannot be used in your quilt. Once again, you are the designer.
Ann and Andy
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Ann and Andy quilt block belongs to the four patch category. Even though it is constructed using 16 patches, they are sewn together in four quadrants to complete the quilt block.
Squares and half square triangles are the only patches in this block, making it an "easy" block, but it also fits into the "intermediate" category due to the number of pieces used to make the quilt block.
The sample quilts shown illustrate how to make two totally different looks by simply rotating the quilt blocks.
