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.

Sample Quilt Layouts

A simple quilt block, as is the case here with the Black Hole block, can make for some inspiring quilts. The two sample quilts shown below both use on point settings of the blocks. But, as you can see, by switching up the colour of some blank blocks, and adding some sashing strips, you can achieve a totally different look.
