Using colours such as I have used in the sample quilt layout illustrations with the Around the Block quilt block, shows you that many quilts can be designed for men's tastes. Choose those dark fabrics and more muted tones and your man will be delighted in the final product.
|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.
