BLOCKS by SIZE 10" Quilt Blocks

What could be easier, math-wise, than a quilt block in a 10 inch size? Surprisingly, the 10" block is not the most commonly used size, (that would be the 12" block), but there are still many quilt blocks that fit into this category and here is my list of currently available patterns.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Brighton Beach quilt block is a five patch block (meaning it is created using a 5 x 5 grid). However, rather than sew the block in five rows of five, I prefer to construct is as an uneven nine patch as I find that an easier method.

This is am easy block and is a good choice for beginners. You will learn about making half square triangles and flying geese - two of the most commonly used patches in quilt making.

The sample quilts illustrated give you ideas of setting your quilt blocks side by side (which produces a subtle secondary pattern of pinwheels, or I have also chosen to set the blocks on point with sashing strips and blank blocks to showcase your quilting skills.
