|BLOCKS by SIZE||5" Quilt Blocks|
For those quilters wanting a little more of a challenge, five inch quilt blocks might be the answer -- smaller blocks usually means more blocks to make. Another reason for using five inch blocks is to create a secondary pattern. By using 4 blocks and rotating each of them, you get a different larger quilt block. These larger blocks can then be laid out in variety of ways to make some very interesting original designs.
The two sample quilts illustrated using the Auntie's Puzzle quilt block look very different from each other. The quilt layout set with blocks side by side, uses 90 degree rotations of the block to create a secondary pattern. The quilt blocks set on point have additional blank blocks and setting triangles to showcase your quilting skills. Enjoy your creating experience!
