|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 Autumn Tints quilt block might look difficult at first glance. However, on closer inspection, you will see that it is made of simple patches -- only squares, rectangles and half square triangles.
My version of this seven patch design is sewn, for ease, in what I like to call "chunks", rather than row by row. These chunks are laid out and constructed as an uneven nine patch to make the whole process much easier -- at least in my view.
In keeping with the name of the block, I chose to use the colours of autumn for my version, but this block would look striking in lots of other palettes. Which will you choose?
