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.


Sample Quilt Layouts

The two sample quilt layouts shown below both use standard settings of the blocks, but with very different resultant quilts.

The quilt layout featured on the left, sets the blocks side by side and also takes a liberty with the sewing of the block by making several as mirror images, so that the birds face each other.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets the blocks on point with blank blocks in between for an extra splash of colour. Note that some of the blocks are mirror images as well as being yellow -- the colour of the female cardinal, for a bit of added interest in the quilt.
