|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!
Cain and Abel
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Cain and Abel quilt block is a five patch block as it is built on a 5 X 5 square. However, it is sewn together as an uneven nine patch as the construction is easier.
This quilt block is easy to make, containing only squares and half square triangles. I have included instructions for making four different sizes of this quilt block.
The sample quilts illustrated show how different two quilts with all the same blocks can be when you create your heirloom.
