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.

The Catch Me If You Can quilt block is a four patch that is a perfect choice for a beginner quilter. It contains only half square triangles and flying geese units -- the first pieced patches you will learn as someone new to quiltmaking.

Colour choices and placement can have a big impact on the resultant quilts you might design using this quilt block, as evidenced below in the two sample quilts illustrated. This just reinforces that easy blocks do not necessarily equate to boring blocks.
