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

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Castles in Spain quilt block is sewn in a different sequence than is commonly used, but a striking, and easy quilt block is the result.

The two sample quilts shown below are also stunning and use favourite quilt block settings. One quilt shows the blocks set side by side while the other quilt uses the blocks set on point for a totally different effect. Both quilts use sashing strips to separate the blocks. Will you choose one of these quilt layouts or create one of your own?
