|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.

The Blueberry Compote quilt block surprised me when I started playing around with the quilt settings. Originally I had started with a three colour block but felt that the resultant quilts were kind of 'ho-hum'. Once I introduced an additional fabric (a complementary colour), it added just the spark I was looking for.
This is an easy quilt block to construct -- containing only half square triangles and squares and is constructed as an uneven nine patch, simply because of the way the sections are put together.
I hope that you start to play around with colour when trying out this block, just to see what really interesting quilt you can come up with.
