|BLOCKS by SIZE||8" Quilt Blocks|
Eight inch quilt blocks are commonly used in quilts that are made up of one block only and the parts are easily divisible by four. Also, by setting the blocks in different layouts, you can create many different new designs -- sometimes with just a simple rotation of the block. This is not to say that larger or smaller versions of the same quilt block cannot be used in your quilt. Once again, you are the designer.
Castles in Spain
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Castles in Spain quilt block is an uneven nine patch design containing half square triangles and quarter square triangles in an unusual construction, but certainly not difficult. The end result is very striking.
This quilt block would be a good choice for a beginner quilter as it deviates from the usual construction methods in many quilt blocks so the quilter gets to try a new approach to making a standard sized block.
