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.

By the Sea

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The By the Sea quilt block is a good choice for a beginner quilter as it uses only the two most common patches -- the square and the half square triangle. This five patch block is constructed as an uneven nine patch because I feel that is an easier method for construction.

The colour choices here are (in my mind), reflective of the sand, surf and sunset on a beach by the sea.

The sample quilts illustrated show blocks set two different ways. One quilt has the blocks in a straight setting with the blocks side by side and separated by sashing strips, while the second quilt uses an on point layout with additional blank blocks to showcase your quilting designs.
