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.

Cape Cod

Sample Quilt Layouts

East coasters will love to create a special version of a quilt using the Cape Cod quilt block. The sample quilt layout shown below on the left utilizes an on point setting of the blocks, separating them with sashing strips. By visually dividing the quilt on the diagonal lengthwise, you can enhance the feeling of "sand and surf" with the colour blocking. The quilt layout on the right sets the blocks side by side for a very intriguing look, with lots of visual interest.

What will you choose or will you design your own version?
