|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.

The Art Square quilt block is a great starter for the beginner quilter. It can be made as a larger block to get the idea of how patches go together. For quilters who want more of a challenge, you could make the same block but in a smaller scale. This will really enhance the precision of your piecing skills.
The Art Square quilt block contains simple patches -- only the square and half square triangles to create those flying geese units, which are so common to many quilts.
