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.

Chisholm Trail

Sample Quilt Layouts


Take advantage of the directional nature of the Chisholm Trail quilt block to make a variety of stunning quilts. The quilt shown on the left uses an on point setting of the individual blocks, with setting triangles for an extra punch of colour. The quilt shown on the right uses four blocks in a group with 90 degree rotations, for a totally different look. Let your imagination create your own stunning quilt!
