|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 Blue Yukon quilt block is a simple five patch design featuring only squares, rectangles and half square triangles.
The design is constructed as an uneven nine patch to make the construction easier (at least in my opinion), rather than sewing row by row.
The two sample quilts illustrated use standard quilt block settings for their designs. The on point quilt layout uses extra blank blocks for an additional spark of colour.
