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 Cheyenne quilt block is a wonderful choice as an introductory block for a new quilter.

This block is technically a four patch design, as it is created using a 4 x 4 grid. However, it is actually sewn as an uneven nine patch due to the arrangement of the patches.

This block features two commonly used patches -- the half square triangle and the square in a square unit which makes up the centre of the block. You will have great fun with colour placement in this block.
