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.

Balkan Puzzle

Sample Quilt Layouts

The two sample quilts illustrated give you ideas of what can be done with this Balkan Puzzle block. Both quilts use standard quilt layouts of the blocks, but keep in mind though, that these sample layouts are just the "tip of the iceberg". You are only as limited as your imagination.

As a side note: Notice that the blocks seem to "float" in the quilt, due to creating the sashing strips in the prominent black fabric used in this block.
