|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.
In the illustrations of sample quilts that can be created, you can see that by simply switching the placement of two of the fabrics in some of the blocks -- (as evidenced in the layout shown on the right), you can achieve a very different quilt. I hope you enjoy the process of making your own Baton Rouge Square quilt.
