|BLOCKS by SIZE||7.5" Quilt Blocks|
Ten inch quilt blocks are a favourite of quilters. However if you are wanting to make a smaller version of any given 10" block, with a little finagling, the math for a 7½ inch block is not that difficult. And -- for the blocks below, I have done that math for you! A win-win!
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.
