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.

Cain and Abel

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Cain and Abel quilt block is one of a series of biblical blocks that can make a stunning quilt. Below, the sample quilts are designed using a side by side setting of the blocks and a second choice featuring an on point layout. Additional colour is added by either using sashing strips to separate the blocks or by using blank blocks to enlarge the quilt and showcase your quilting designs.
