Two different options for quilts using the Blueberry Compote quilt block are shown here. Both samples below use the same quilt layout. However, an additional colour added to the quilt block brings an extra spark to the resultant quilt shown on the right. But then again, you may prefer a quilt with more subtlety as evidenced in the quilt shown on the left.
|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.
