|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 sample quilt layouts illustrated give you ideas for the design of your quilt, and show a straight setting with sashing strips separating the blocks and an on point layout, and thereby making two very different looks. Rotations can also play a part in the block placement in your quilt, due to the directional nature of the block. This in turn will create subtle secondary patterns, as you will see in the sample quilts shown.
